In the 25-year history of the WNBA, there have only been five HBCU players drafted into the league.

Hard to believe that Katisha Hyman from Fayetteville State was left off this list and the young lady from Livingstone was put there. There seems to be purpose for leaving FSU Broncos out of any conversation of recognition, whether it be coach or player. The women's program at FSU has made great strides and has had the one of the leagues best players for the last three years, the team has won the Conference Championship as well as winning the Division hands down for the last three to four years that they have played. Yet neither the coach or players have gotten any recognition.

The only legit WNBA player that I see and know on that list is Williams of JSU.  Even then she probably would not start.

Ay’Anna Bey - too many issues for WNBA IMHO - They cited stats against EWU and CSU but she tends to wither in big games.

1. Undersized to play post in WNBA
2. Can't dribble well enough to play forward
3. Can't/won't shoot a consistent jumper
4. Too many mental errors/unforced turnovers
5. Does not show the desire needed to play in the WNBA
