University of Delaware's Elena Delle Donne was drafted 2nd overall in the WNBA draft by Chicago Monday.
Delle Donne was expected to be a top pick in the Monday night draft.
During the past season, Delle Donne helped the Blue Hens make a NCAA Sweet 16 appearance in the tournament.
"This is a very exciting time for Elena, her family, her teammates and our coaching staff," head coach Tina Martin told Bluehens.com before the draft.
The Blue Hens posted a 32-4 overall record this season.
Rain at times expected tonight, Friday, and early Saturday. Another fall-like blast of cool weather to follow for the weekend.
Expect unsettled weather through Saturday morning as waves of showers and thunderstorms move through the area. Some of the storms may bring heavy downpours later this afternoon.
It's still muggy out there. Things start to change tomorrow afternoon, as the rain clears out, and much cooler air moves in making it feel more like fall. Sunday is nice with a cool breeze and unseasonably low temperatures which last though early next week.
