Lexie Hull Declares for WNBA Draft
STANFORD, Calif. - Lexie Hull has announced her decision to enter the 2022 WNBA Draft and begin a career in professional basketball, announced Monday morning.
The quintessential Stanford student-athlete, Hull finishes her time with the Cardinal boasting a bevy of awards, both on and off the basketball court. One of only 15 players in program history to be named All-Pac-12 three times, while also picking up two All-Defensive Team honors, Hull gave every ounce of herself to the Stanford program for the past four seasons. Academically, she is just the second in program history to be named a two-time first-team Academic All-American. She was recently named the winner of the NCAA Elite 90 Award, given to the player at the sport's championship site with the highest GPA, and also became Stanford's third winner all-time of the Senior CLASS Award.
Hull wraps her career with 1,402 points, ranking 24th in program history, with 191 career 3-pointers, good for 11th all-time at Stanford. Her 78 steals this season ranked 30th nationally and are the eighth most in a single season in program history.
"You truly could not ask for someone to do more for a team than Lexie Hull has done," commented The Setsuko & Ishiyama Director of Women's Basketball Tara VanDerveer. "She has been the engine that's made us run, while excelling at such a high level in every facet of her life. With her hard work ethic and drive, Lexie is sure to find success."
Starting every game in which she was available since her sophomore year, Hull helped lead the Cardinal to one national championship, two Final Fours, two Pac-12 regular season championships and three Pac-12 Tournament championships. She led the team in scoring 24 times in her career, boasting 65 double-digit scoring performances and eight double-doubles. Her career-high of 36 points came just a few weeks ago against Kansas in her final game at Maples Pavilion. Hull had at least 20 points 14 times in her career at Stanford, with nine double-digit rebounding efforts. She was top three on the team in scoring and rebounding each of the last three seasons, leading the squad in rebounds as a sophomore.
Stanford boasts 27 WNBA Draft picks all-time, including 12 in the first round. Stanford's last pick in the draft came last year, as Kiana Williams was the sixth pick of the second round to the Seattle Storm. Nnemkadi and Chiney Oguwmike remain Stanford's highest draft picks, both being selected No. 1 in 2012 and 2014.
The 2022 WNBA Draft will be held on April 11 on ESPN at 4 p.m. PST.
