Former Utah women’s basketball star Alissa Pili is heading to Minnesota after the Lynx took her No. 8 overall in the 2024 WNBA Draft.

Pili really turned heads as a prospect after posting up 37 points on the eventual National Champion South Carolina Gamecocks early in the year. Her performance was so strong that head coach Dawn Staley noted during a break in the game that they “could not stop her”.

The former Utah star is just one of many headliners in a strong 2024 WNBA class that many hope will have the same effect on the pro game as they did in college.
