Share

The Indiana Fever selected Caitlin Clark with the number one pick in the 2024 WNBA Draft. The former Iowa guard set numerous records during her career with the Hawkeyes. In her senior season, Clark became the all-time NCAA Division One men’s and women’s scoring leader. She also achieved the most three-pointers in a single season by any male or female Division One player and became the first player in NCAA tournament history with three career 40-point games. Stanford’s Cameron Brink went second overall to the Los Angeles Sparks. The Chicago Sky selected South Carolina center Kamilla Cardoso third overall. The Sky then took LSU star Angel Reese with the seventh pick.

University of Iowa graduate student Kate Martin was selected by the Las Vegas Aces with 18th overall pick in the 2nd round of the WNBA Draft. Martin joins teammate Caitlin Clark in the 2024 draft class as the fifth Hawkeye to be drafted into the WNBA since 2019, following Kathleen Doyle, Megan Gustafson, Monika Czinano, and Clark.

Nineteen Hawkeyes have been drafted or signed in the WNBA since the league originated in 1997. This marks the first time since 1998 that two Hawkeyes have been drafted in the same year.
