Shock Wrap Up Draft With UALR's Chastity Reed

Posted: Updated:

The Tulsa Shock have completed the 2011 WNBA Draft with four players being selected.

The final piece of the puzzle came with the selection of Arkansas-Little Rock forward Chastity Reed, who averaged 19.6 points and 6.2 rebounds per game for the Trojans as a senior.

She joins Elizabeth Cambage, Kayla Pedersen and Italee Lucas as this year's draft class.

The Shock selected the 6'8" Cambage with the second overall pick. Cambage averaged 22.3 points and 8.2 rebounds per game for the Bulleen Boomers of the Women's National Basketball League in Australia.

The 19 year old was the leading scorer, shot blocker and field goal percentage leader in the WNBL in being named the league's Most Valuable Player.

Pedersen was selected with the seventh overall pick. She averaged 12.9 points and eight rebounds per game as a senior at Stanford, helping lead the Cardinal to the Final Four and a 33-and-3 overall record.

Lucas, a 5'8" guard from North Carolina, was taken with the 21st overall pick in the second round. She averaged 15.8 points per game for the Tar Heels and was named to the All-ACC Second Team.

The Shock finished their inaugural season with a 6-and-28 record. The 2011 season will begin June fourth at San Antonio.
