Default Ogwumike taken No. 1 by Sparks in 2012 WNBA draft

The AP reports:

Nnemkadi Ogwumike is excited to be staying in California.

The Stanford senior was picked No. 1 in the WNBA draft by the Los Angeles Sparks on Monday.

''I'm grateful for the L.A. Sparks for picking me,'' Ogwumike said. ''It means a lot and it's one of the highest accolades I've ever received. I'm looking forward to going back to Cali.'' ...

Tennessee guard Shekinna Stricklen went second to the Seattle Storm, who will be without star Lauren Jackson for the first part of the season since she will stay in Australia to train for the London Olympics this summer.

''I was a little surprised,'' Stricklen said. ''It helped when I did a workout with coach Brian (Agler), I had a feeling but wasn't sure.''

Notre Dame post Devereaux Peters went third to the defending champion Minnesota Lynx, who had five of the first 20 picks in the draft. She was surprised she was picked so high, having recovered from two ACL surgeries on her left knee since entering Notre Dame.

Good draft all around. Tulsa should have gotten the overall number one pick but oh well. They got a nice player in Glory Johnson. The Mystics added tough as nails Natalie Novosel. Her game has really improved over the last 2-3 years. I can't wait until the season starts in a few weeks.
