Dream take McCoughtry with top pick in WNBA draft
Angel McCoughtry found a way to become No. 1 _ in the WNBA draft.
Two days after her Louisville Cardinals were beaten by Connecticut in the national title game, the All-American forward was chosen by the Atlanta Dream with the No. 1 overall pick.
It's been quite an emotional few days for McCoughtry.
'I have no complaints,' she said Thursday. 'This is the best thing in the world. This is the best position to be in.'
The 6-foot-1 McCoughtry averaged 22.8 points and 9.5 rebounds her last three years and led the Cardinals to an upset of Oklahoma in the Final Four before losing to undefeated UConn in Tuesday night's title game.
