But Wednesday in the Big Apple, there was joy for both schools that had met in Florida for the national championship just three days earlier. With the first overall pick in the WNBA draft, the Las Vegas Aces selected the junior out of Notre Dame.

Tennessee is the only other school to have that occur, in 2008.

National champion Baylor had two players selected: first-rounder Kalani Brown at No. 7 by Los Angeles and Final Four most outstanding player Chloe Jackson in the second round, at No. 15, by Chicago. Jessica Shepard and Marina Mabrey were also expected to be taken.

Young set the IN high school scoring record with 3,268 career points. "We've had a lot of accomplishments, but this one stands alone". In the Aces' inaugural year, they took rookie of the year A'ja Wilson. "It's probably a once-in-lifetime moment".

Jackie Young's draft stock rose over the course of the weekend.

She became the second Notre Dame player ever to go as the top pick, following Jewell Loyd, who went No. 1 overall in the 2015 Draft.

Jackie spoke with ESPN's Holly Rowe after the selection, and spoke about the hard decision to leave college a year early, along with what her new team will get from her when she takes the court later this year. "There's a lot of stuff or a lot of talk that's going to happen this week about who, what, where, how".

Young was the first of five Notre Dame players to be drafted.

It was the third consecutive year the Aces had the No. 1 pick.

The 2019 WNBA Draft will be held Wednesday night at Nike's headquarters in New York City. "You always dream of being the first pick, but to actually be able to achieve that is just insane". "I can't believe it's real". "There are multiple choices at the top that can be had, depending on who's picking".

It's been a wild 72 hours for the national champion. Monday, back in Waco, Texas, the team celebrated with fans at the Ferrell Center, and then an exhausted coach Kim Mulkey said she went home that evening to relax in a hot bath.

"I think we have a renewed sense of excitement, kind of getting past the limbo of being for sale", said Liberty coach Katie Smith. "But he said, 'I've got good news, Coach'". The worst-case scenario might have meant she would have missed the entire 2019-20 season. "She's a quality basketball player all the way around - plays defense, can handle the ball, can attack the basket, rebounds - all the good traits of a quality basketball player". "She just laughed. But you saw the impact that kid has on our team". Xu would be the first Chinese player drafted since 1997 and Magbegor would be the latest in a long line of talented Australian players. This wasn't the first time that the former Notre Dame star and her teammates heard their coach speaking out for women everywhere.

But Jackson wasn't on most evaluators' radar when she came to Baylor last fall as a graduate transfer.

"I rebound and I block shots", said McCowan, who averaged 18.4 points, 13.5 rebounds and 2.4 blocks as a senior. "She really tries to tell us to be advocates for that and I'm definitely going to take that away". She never got rattled.

But Young can really do it all no matter where she is on the floor.

As for Brown, Mulkey said, "She has to be on top of the world right now".
