Slocum Is Second Ladyback Taken in WNBA Draft

NCAA Womens Basketball: Arkansas at Tennessee Randy Sartin-USA TODAY Sports

Arkansas Ladyback point guard, Destiny Slocum is headed to Sin City. She will be playing her professional basketball with the Las Vegas Aces. The Aces chose her with the 14th pick of the WNBA Draft on Thursday.

Slocum joined the Razorbacks last spring when she transferred in from Oregon State. The talented guard was named second team All-SEC by the leagues coaches this season.

In her lone season as a Ladyback, Slocum averaged 15.0 points, 3.3 rebounds, 3.9 assists, 0.8 steals, 31.7 minutes per game. She also shot 48.3% from the field, 39.7 from there and 71.4% at the free throw line. Slocum also had 23 games in which she scored in double figures. She scored a career high 29 points against LSU this season.
Slocum will be joining a team that was pretty solid this past season. The Aces went to the WNBA Finals but eventually lost to to the Seattle Storm. They are coached by Bill Laimbeer and have the reigning league MVP in forward A’ja Wilson.
