Pick No. 12: Ketia Swanier, to Connecticut
Wow. This was a surprise. A lot of coaches and analysts said Swanier had a chance of going first round, but I didn't see this coming. This now gives the Sun a bevy of former Huskies, including Asjha Jones, Tamika Raymond, Barbara Turner and now Swanier. Swanier, who elevated her stock 10-fold through the NCAA tournament, will most likely back up Lindsay Whalen, in turn sharing time with Jamie Carey if she proves capable. If that's the rotation, it should change come late August with the return of Erin Phillips.
