    Burke Selected by Washington Mystics in 2014 WNBA Draft

    April 14, 2014

    UNCASVILLE, Conn. – On Monday evening, senior forward Kody Burke of the No. 21 NC State women’s basketball team became the 15th student athlete in program history to be chosen in the Women’s National Basketball Association (WNBA) Draft.

    With the 32nd overall pick (third round) in this year’s draft, the Washington Mystics selected NC State’s three-time CoSIDA Academic All-American and Northridge, Calif., native.

    Burke was selected on the same evening as teammate Markeisha Gatling (first round, 10th overall), making this the first time since 2007 that the Wolfpack had two WNBA college draft selections in one spring.

    Kody had an incredible career for the Wolfpack, one which will remain in State’s record books for some time. She finished her senior season ranked second in program history in appearances (132) and blocks (197), ninth in program history in career rebounds (832), and 11th in program history in career points scored (1,588).

    Burke and the Mystics will open the 2014 WNBA preseason at Indiana on Monday, May 5.
