Rebecca GreenwellNEW YORK, N.Y. (4/13/18) — Duke University senior Rebecca Greenwell was selected with the 31st overall pick by the Washington Mystics in the WNBA Draft on Thursday night.

A 6-1 native of Owensboro, Greenwell concluded her impressive career hitting a Duke record 301 three-pointers over four seasons, while also ranking fifth all-time on the ACC charts. She became just the second ACC player in history to drain 70 or more three-pointers in four straight seasons. Greenwell finished her Blue Devil career hitting 39.9 percent from downtown, which is the sixth-highest percentage at Duke.

“It feels great to get selected by Washington,” commented Greenwell. “This has been a dream of mine ever since I started playing basketball. I'm excited for this next chapter and so grateful I can continue to further my basketball career as a pro.”

As a senior, Greenwell sank 73 three-pointers for an ACC-best 42.9 percentage. The three-time All-ACC selection also averaged 13.9 points, a team-high 6.4 rebounds, 1.8 steals and 1.6 assists. Greenwell was the first Blue Devil to amass 1,800 points, 600 rebounds and 200 made three-pointers over her career. She concluded her Duke career with 1,874 points, 761 rebounds and 215 steals. Greenwell ranked fifth in points, 12th in rebounds and 11th in steals on the Blue Devil career charts.
