Louisville’s Jazmine Jones and Kylee Shook were selected by the New York Liberty with the 12th and 13th picks of the WNBA draft Friday night.

It marks the second straight season where at least two Louisville players have been selected in the draft. A year ago, three Cards were selected as Asia Durr went second overall to the Liberty, Arica Carter went 32nd to the Phoenix Mercury and Sam Fuehring went 34th to the Washington Mystics.

Jones and Shook are the 12th and 13th Louisville players to hear their names called in the WNBA draft. Eleven of those drafted Cardinals have been coached by Jeff Walz.

Congrats to both Jazmine and Kylee on fulfilling a lifelong dream.
