SOUTH BEND, Ind. (WNDU) - Former Notre Dame forward Maya Dodson will join two former Irish players in the desert after getting drafted by the Phoenix Mercury in the third round of the 2022 WNBA Draft on Monday night.

Dodson becomes the 19th draft pick in 21 years for Notre Dame—the most in the ACC in that span.

She will join former Irish players Skylar Diggins-Smith and Brianna Turner in Phoenix. She also joins a team that finished fifth in the league last season with a 19-13 record.

Dodson transferred to Notre Dame from Stanford. She was second on the team in scoring, averaging over 12 points per game. She led the team in rebounds, averaging over seven a game.
