A’ja Wilson was picked first in the 2018 WNBA Draft on Thursday night.
The Las Vegas Aces, whose franchise just relocated from San Antonio, drafted Wilson with the overall No. 1 pick.
Many consider Wilson to be the greatest Gamecock athlete of all-time. She is the third No. 1 overall pick in school history, joining George Rogers and Jadeveon Clowney.
Wilson had tremendous success in her time at South Carolina. She led the Gamecocks to a national championship and four straight SEC Tournament titles. Wilson also won several women’s Player of the Year awards this season and was a four-time All-SEC selection.
