MINNEAPOLIS/ST. PAUL – After selecting Nebraska guard Lindsey Moore (12th overall) and Georgetown guard Ta’shauna Rodgers (14th overall) with their first two picks in the 2013 WNBA Draft, the Minnesota Lynx wrapped up the 2013 WNBA Draft by selecting Colorado guard Chucky Jeffery with the 24th pick and North Carolina center Waltiea Rolle with the 36th pick.

Jeffery, 22, led Colorado across the board as a senior this past season, averaging team-highs in scoring (13.7 ppg), assists (4.0 apg), rebounds (8.2 rpg) and steals (2.2). She ranked fourth in the Pac-12 assist-to-turnover ratio (1.3), fifth in both assists and steals, sixth in rebounding and double-doubles (10) and ninth in scoring. Jeffery was named an AP All-American Honorable Mention and All-Pac-12 for the second consecutive year.

Rolle, 22, averaged 12.1 points, 6.6 rebounds and 2.5 blocks per game last season with North Carolina, ranking second in the ACC in blocks per game. She was voted to the ACC All-Defensive team by coaches for the second time in three seasons, wrapping up her four years at North Carolina as the eighth leading shot blocker in ACC history. Rolle ranked third in the ACC in offensive rebounds, while ranking second in the Tar Heels in scoring and third in rebounds.
