As the 2023 WNBA season gets underway, it’s time to take a look at how the former Baylor players within the league are doing. 

Connecticut Sun:

Two current Bears are active on the roster for the Sun — F Lauren Cox and G/F DiJonai Carrington.

After being drafted third overall in the 2020 WNBA Draft, Cox spent her first two seasons in the league as a member of the L.A. Sparks — who drafted her — and the Indiana Fever.

Big game for the Indiana Fever today breaking a long, 20 game losing streak by beating Atlanta 90-79.

Indiana was helped by NaLyssa Smith with 23 points and 12 rebounds

Queen Egbo with 10 points and 9 rebounds.

Kristy Wallace also had 10 points including 2 three pointers.

A nice afternoon for all three former Baylor Bears.

Hopefully Lauren will get some playing time; she's been DNP by coaches decision so far.

She is! 12 points and 6 rebounds. Not bad considering she just joined the team at the end of shootaround today.

Dallas Wings Sign Kalani Brown
May 30, 2023

"The Dallas Wings have signed Kalani Brown to a rest of season contract under the League's emergency salary cap hardship provision, the team announced today.

The Wings qualified for the provision
with injuries to Lou Lopez Senechal and Diamond DeShields.
Brown will be available to play in tonight's game vs. the Minnesota Lynx and will remain with the team until the return of either Lopez Senechal or DeShields.

.. Lopez Senechal underwent successful knee surgery on May 24 and is
expected to return in approximately eight weeks.
.. DeShields is also dealing with a knee injury and is
expected to miss at least three months.

Brown, who spent the 2023 training camp with the Wings, averaged 22.3 points, 9.5 rebounds, and 1.7 blocks this past season with Maccabi Bnot Ashdod in Israel. She has spent parts of three years in the WNBA from 2019-2021 playing for the Atlanta Dream and Los Angeles Sparks. Brown is a graduate of Baylor University, where she was the 2018 Big 12 Player of the Year, and a member of the 2019 National Championship squad. She was drafted seventh overall in the 2019 WNBA draft by the Los Angeles Sparks.

In addition to the loss of Lopez Senechal and DeShields, the Wings will also be without Teaira McCowan for an extended period of time during the month of June. McCowan is scheduled to depart the team on May 31 to compete for Turkey in the 2023 FIBA Women's EuroBasket.

It looks like Nalyssa actually lost the tip, but the ball ended up in Queen's hands anyway.

For those headed to Dallas to see BG's first game back in Texas, looks like we'll be treated to seeing THREE Baylor Bears on the court.

Phoenix and Dallas played again tonight. Kalani started and played 30 minutes. Odyssey came off the bench with 26 minutes. Griner scored 18 points. Final Dallas 90, Phoenix 77. Three Baylor greats with Nattys on the floor at one time!

Today Kalani scored 21 and grabbed 11 boards! Why was this girl out of the WNBA until recently?
