Drexel's Marginean drafted by WNBA's Minnesota Lynx

Drexel star Gabriela Marginean's dream of being in the WNBA became a reality yesterday afternoon.

The Minnesota Lynx selected Marginean with the second pick in the third round of the 2010 WNBA draft, No. 26 overall.

"It means a lot. I'm really excited," said Marginean, who finished her storied Drexel career with 2,581 points and became the program's first All-American. "I'm glad they saw something in me that they might need.

"But it's still a longshot. I still have to go to training camp and we'll see after that."

"It's obviously been a goal of Gabi's," Drexel women's coach Denise Dillon said. "And we're extremely proud of her."

Marginean, an Associated Press honorable mention All-American who averaged 23.5 points per game during her senior season, is the all-time leading scorer in Philadelphia women's college basketball history. She is also the Colonial Athletic Conference's career scoring leader.

The 6-1 forward from Romania is the first Drexel player to be drafted by the WNBA. The Lynx finished 14-20 last season.

Camden Catholic High graduate Rashidat Junaid, a 6-4 center who played at Rutgers, was picked 32nd overall by the Los Angeles Sparks.

Tina Charles, of national champion Connecticut, was selected first overall by the Connecticut Sun.
