WNBA This Way, Renee

UConn guard Renee Montgomery expected to be among top WNBA picks

This has been a good week for University of Connecticut guard Renee Montgomery.

She helped her team to a national title Tuesday night and how she is expected to be one of the top picks in the WNBA draft.

The draft starts at 3 p.m. Thursday and Atlanta has the top pick.

Montgomery, Oklahoma's Courtney Paris, Maryland's Kristi Toliver and Marissa Coleman and Louisville's Angel McCoughtry are considered the top prospects.

What are the chances she’ll stay around here? The Connecticut Sun has the 10th, 17th and 37th picks in the draft and are looking to add some depth in the front court.

It would be tough for many of the draft choices to make a team this season.

The Houston Comets folded in the off-season and rosters league-wide have been slashed from 13 to 11 players, leaving 39 fewer jobs.
