Brittany Chambers to move on to WNBA

Emily DeShazer | The Collegian Senior guard Brittney Chambers was drafted in the WNBA by the Los Angeles Spark as the 22nd pick of the 2013 WNBA Draft. Chambers was the ninth player in school history with 1,000 points, 500 rebounds and 200 assists.

After finishing one of the most successful women’s basketball careers in K-State history, senior guard Brittany Chambers was selected 22nd overall by the Los Angeles Sparks in the 2013 WNBA draft.

The Sparks are coming off of a season that saw them reach the Western Conference finals before falling to the Minnesota Lynx.

Chambers was the second player that the Sparks drafted. The first was Kentucky guard A’dia Mathies, who was the 10th pick overall.

During her time on the K-State women’s basketball team, Chambers played both point and shooting guard, which should help her as she makes the move to the WNBA.

Chambers is the first K-State player to be drafted into the WNBA since 2009, when Shalee Lehning was drafted 25th overall by the Atlanta Dream.
