March 28, 2007
UCLA senior guard Noelle Quinn (Los Angeles, Calif.) has earned Associate Press honorable mention All-American honors for the second consecutive year.
Quinn was a first-team All-Pac-10 selection and a finalist for both the Kodak/WBCA All-America team and the Wade Trophy. She finished the year ranked fifth in the Pac-10 in scoring (17.2 ppg), second in assists (5.75 apg) and 12th in rebounding (6.6 rpg). Quinn became the only UCLA basketball player, man or woman, to record 1,700 career points, 700 rebounds and 400 assists, finishing with 1,829 points (No. 4 all-time at UCLA), 794 rebounds (No. 8 all-time) and 450 assists (No. 7 all-time). Quinn is also a stand-out academically, earning CoSIDA Academic All-District and Pac-10 All-Academic honors.
Expected to be one of the top picks in the WNBA draft, Quinn has been invited the WNBA pre-draft camp, which will take place at Cleveland State University on March 30-31. The camp offers coaches and general managers from all 13 WNBA teams an opportunity to evaluate the top young players in advance of the 2007 WNBA Draft presented by adidas set to take place in Cleveland on April 4. The prospects will showcase their skills and compete against one another in drills, half court scenarios and full court scrimmages during three on-court sessions.
The 2007 WNBA Draft presented by adidas will begin at 1 p.m. ET at the Renaissance Hotel in Cleveland. ESPN2 will provide exclusive first round coverage of the Draft, with continued coverage of the second and third rounds on ESPNU and NBA TV.
