UCLA's Maylana Martin Chosen In First Round Of WNBA Draft

April 25, 2000

UCLA All-American forward Maylana Martin (Perris, CA) was chosen by the Minnesota Lynx as the 10th pick overall in the WNBA draft.

The 6-3 Martin, who was the sixth collegiate player selected, becomes the first UCLA player ever drafted as a collegian to the WNBA since the league was formed in 1997. She also joins Natalie Williams as one of two Bruins picked in first round in the history of the WNBA draft.

Last season, Martin averaged 17.4 points and 8.7 rebounds while leading UCLA to an unprecedented third consecutive appearance in the NCAA Tournament. Martin also became just the third player in Pac-10 history to earn first-team all-conference honors all four years of her career.
