SECAUCUS, N.J. – Oklahoma State’s Andrea Riley became the first player in

“It feels great to get this opportunity and it is all so exciting. This all
came up so fast and I just can“t wait to get started,” Riley said. “Getting
to play professionally will be a breath of fresh air and is something I have
dreamed about. It will be an honor, which is a great feeling.”

Riley, who earlier in the day was named to the Basketball Select Team,
was tabbed as a second-team All-American by the Associated Press this year

the 10th-best single-season total in history. She also dished out a 220
assists, which stands as the fourth-best single-season total in Big 12
