UNCASVILLE, Connecticut – University of Iowa senior point guard Samantha Logic was drafted 10th overall by the Atlanta Dream in the WNBA Draft Thursday night.
The senior point guard started all 135 games during her stellar four-year career with the Hawkeyes. During her collegiate career, Logic scored a total of 1,546 points (10th in school history), captured 922 rebounds (second), and dished out 898 assists (first).
The native of Racine, Wisconsin, is the only player in NCAA history to accumulate at least 1,500 career points, 800 rebounds, 800 assists, and 200 steals. She also posted a total of six triple-doubles during her run with the Hawkeyes.
Last season, Logic averaged 13.4 points, 8.1 assists, and 7.0 rebounds in 34 games played.
This marks the first time in 18 years – and just the second time in school history – that a Hawkeye women’s basketball player has been chosen in the first round of the WNBA Draft.
The previous instance was when Toni Foster was taken with the eighth pick in the first round by the Phoenix Mercury in 1997.
