    2nd round

    All comments by Nate Parham:

    18: Julia Wojta, F, Wisconsin-Green Bay

    Wows: Wojta is a much better athlete than she’s given credit for. Her stats are somewhat off the charts. She really was a guard playing the post position at Green Bay – that’s more impressive.

    Wonders: I do wonder how much of her statistical production was the result of a somewhat unconventional system on both ends.

    Worries: Ball handling – she’s an excellent decision-maker, but Green Bay didn’t put the ball on the floor much. So that would either work extremely well for a high synergy team or mean that she’ll struggle on a team that wants to go one on one more.

    19: Kayla Standish, F, Gonzaga Bulldogs

    Wows: Standish is a great passer and can shoot from the perimeter, which is important. In her junior year she showed that she was a better 3-point shooter.

    Wonders: Does her decline in production without Courtney Vandersloot in her senior year mean she’s not as good as her junior numbers or perhaps that she’ll be outstanding as a cog in a high synergy system that likes to run things through the high post?

    Worries: She was a scorer in college and not necessarily a strong rebounder. She’ll have a better chance at success on a team that can fully utilize her skill in the high post.

    20: Nika Baric, G, From Slovenia

    Nika Baric, a 5-7 point guard from Slovenia, also played in the 2011 U19's, but with more limited success. In that tournament Slovenia lost all three of their games, also playing in Brazil's group. Baric's numbers in those three games accounted for averages of 13.7 points on 54.2% shooting from inside the arc, 5.0 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 2.0 turnovers.

    In the 2011-12 basketball season, she competed for Russia's Spartak in both the Russian league and Euroleague seasons. Some of her teammates included American's Candice Dupree, Seimone Augustus and Becky Hammon with coach Pokey Chatman at the helm. Her contribution was definitely more limited on such a powerful roster, and Baric averaged 5.0 points and 2.4 assists in 15.4 minutes during the Russian league games. Her Euroleague stats slipped to 3.2 points and 1.2 assists in 12.2 minutes a night.
