Draft update: Fortunate Sun take Hightower

This is easily the most productive draft the Sun have ever had. Connecticut drafted LSU's Allison Hightower at No. 15, stealing an All-SEC First Team selection with the third pick of the second round.

If the Sun had gotten Hightower with the No. 7 overall pick, it wouldn't have been a stretch, but to get Hightower (18.5 points per game) where they did, the Sun have added a tough, defensive-minded guard who can also score.

Suddenly, a training camp that was expected to be pretty by-the-book is going to have intense competition.

In other news, Kalana Greene went 13th overall to the New York Liberty.

The media here at Mohegan just jumped off the phone with Kelsey Griffin, roughly 10 minutes after Tina Charles was on a conference call. Danielle McCray is expected to call within the next few minutes as well, likely followed by Hightower.
