Miller, Meyers Among Highest Picks in WNBA Draft

By Maryland Athletics Staff

Two Terps were among the top picks in last night’s 2023 WNBA Draft, with Diamond Miller taken second overall by the Minnesota Lynx and Abby Meyers selected No. 11 by the Dallas Wings.

Miller is the Terrapins' highest draft pick since Marissa Coleman went No. 2 overall to the Washington Mystics in 2009.

In her senior season, Miller was named a WBCA Coaches' All-American and was a unanimous First Team All-Big Ten honoree. She led the Terrapins with 19.7 points and 6.4 rebounds per game.

The three-time All-Big Ten honoree scored in double figures in 33 of 34 games played this season. Miller led the Terps to nine wins over top-25 teams, five over top 10 teams and their first Elite Eight appearance since 2015.

Miller ended her career at No. 10 on the Terps' all-time scoring list with 1,706 career points. She also finished in the Terrapins’ all-time top 10 in blocks (111), career free throw percentage (78.7%) and free throws made (410). Miller broke Maryland's record for free throws made in a season with 201 this year.

She played in 117 games for Maryland and helped the Terrapins to the 2020 and 2021 Big Ten Tournament and regular-season titles, as well as two Sweet Sixteens and one Elite Eight.

Meyers played her senior season at Maryland after competing at Princeton for three years. With the Terps, she averaged 14.3 points and 5.1 rebounds and shot 39% from outside the arc.

At Princeton, Meyers was the 2022 Ivy League Player of the Year and an AP Honorable Mention All-American. She scored 947 career points at Princeton and reached 1,000 for her career with 501 in her one season at Maryland.

Currently, six Terrapin alums are in the WNBA: Kaila Charles (Atlanta Dream), Tianna Hawkins (Washington Mystics), Brionna Jones (Connecticut Sun), Kristi Toliver (Los Angeles Sparks), Alyssa Thomas (Connecticut Sun) and Shatori Walker-Kimbrough (Washington Mystics).

Twenty Terrapins have been drafted since the WNBA began in 1999. Sixteen Terps were under Brenda Frese, including 10 in the first round. The last time two Terps were drafted in the first round was 2017, with Walker-Kimbrough going No. 6 overall and Jones picked No. 8 overall.
