Tayler Hill Selected Fourth Overall in WNBA Draft
Selected fourth overall on Monday night, Tayler Hill became the third former Ohio State women's basketball player to be drafted in the first round of the WNBA Draft in as many years. The two-time All-Big Ten guard joins Samantha Prahalis and Jantel Lavender in the prominent group. Jessica Davenport was also drafted in the first round, in 2007.
Hill joins the Washington Mystics after a four-year career in Columbus that saw her score 2,015 points, fourth all-time at Ohio State. She also ranks second in free throws made (581), sixth in three-point field goals made (194) and eighth in steals (240). She is one of only two Buckeyes to record at least 2,000 points, 300 assists and 200 steals in a career.
Hill was a three-time Big Ten All-Defensive team selection. In 2013, she was an honorable mention All-American, leading the Big Ten with 22.3 points per game.
