STORRS, Conn. - UConn senior Renee Montgomery (St. Albans, W. Va.) was selected by the Minnesota Lynx with the fourth overall selection in the 2009 WNBA Draft, which was held Thursday afternoon in Secaucus, N.J.
Montgomery is the 10th UConn player to be chosen in the first round of the WNBA Draft.
The selection also marks the ninth time in the past 11 years that a Connecticut player was selected in the WNBA Draft - the lone exceptions coming in 2003 and 2007, when the Huskies did not have any seniors on the roster.
Montgomery represents the 20th UConn player overall selected in a WNBA Draft.
