Tonight’s a big night for former Texas Longhorns forward Joyner Holmes.
It won’t be like previous years, in that the three-round WNBA Draft will be conducted virtually. It will, however, be a defining moment for Holmes’ professional basketball career.
Where will she land?
Hot take: Joyner Holmes ends up being a steal in the draft. She was ranked #2 overall coming out of high school. She played well at Texas but I think we have yet to see just how great she is. #WNBADraft https://t.co/54U0RIewVS— Women’s Hoopz (@WomensHoopz) April 15, 2020
