Morgan Tuck Third Overall Pick in the 2016 WNBA Draft

Morgan Tuck was the third overall pick and the third straight UCONN player drafted. Tuck was drafted by the Connecticut Sun, who play at the Mohegan Sun Arena. Tuck was also a key asset to the Huskies and their successful run for four straight WNCAA Championships. In four years, Tuck compiled an average of 11.3 PPG, a 53.5% field-goal percentage, and a total of 1,298. Tuck was thrilled to know that she would be playing for Connecticut in the next step of her career.

Out of the top three draft picks, Tuck was the only one to not play the entire 34 games. The Connecticut Sun looked to Tuck for some help after a disappointing 15-19 season in 2015. In 26 games, Tuck averaged 7 points per game and had a 41% field-goal percentage. The Suns had another disappointing 14-20 season. Tuck and the Suns look to play the Atlanta Dream at home on opening day.
