I just became a Las Vegas Aces fan, a few weeks after I became a Tampa Bay Buccaneers Fan. Holy Cross has an alum in the NFL and one in the NBA but I don't think either got drafted. When was the last time (other than MLB which has 40 rounds, down from 75 rounds in 1988) a Holy Cross player got drafted by a pro league?

Wow ! Great for the program too From that long interview that Foley posted she did not give any indication that she was being evaluated by the WNBA - I wonder if she has any private workouts at HC since the season ended
Bill Laimbeer has coached in the WNBA for 15 of the last 18 years with 6 first place conference finishes and 3 WNBA titles (with the Detroit Shock and Swin Cash). Has a daughter who played HS and college ball several yrs. ago. Suffice it to say that he has a good record for identifying and coaching top female talent. As the Aces only selection and given Laimbeer’s coaching record, Lauren may have been drafted into the best possible situation. Time will tell. Best wishes to her.

Bison, do you remember a PLT game between HC and Bucknell that was televised where Molly Creamer was driving to the hoop and appeared to be well guarded, and then put it in another gear and just blew by the defender? It might have been something to do with the camera angle but it looked like the defender was left with two broken ankles and Molly had the bucket.
