Nnamaka to Participate in 2008 WNBA Pre-Draft Camp in Tampa

April 3, 2008

NEW YORK –

Georgia Tech senior guard Chioma Nnamaka will participate in the 2008 WNBA Pre-Draft Camp at the University of Tampa Friday-Saturday. She will join close to 40 athletes competing for a chance to play basketball at the highest level.

 

Nnamaka, a native of Uppsala, Sweden, will join a group of top women’s basketball prospects from around the world who will showcase their skills and compete against one another in drills, half court scenarios and full court scrimmages during three on-court sessions. The camp offers coaches and general managers from all 14 WNBA teams an opportunity to evaluate the top young players in advance of the 2008 WNBA Draft presented by adidas, which is expected to be the deepest in league history and will be held at Innisbrook Resort and Golf Club in Palm Harbor, Fla. on April 9.

 

League-appointed personnel will conduct player physical examinations on Thursday, April 3, followed by two on-court sessions scheduled for Friday, April 4 (9 a.m. – 11:30 a.m., 6 – 9 p.m.) and one session on Saturday, April 5 (9-11 a.m.).

 

The 2008 WNBA Draft presented by adidas will begin at 1 p.m. EDT at the Innisbrook Resort and Golf Club, which is owned by Washington Mystics President and Managing Partner Sheila Johnson, in Palm Harbor, Fla. ESPN2 will provide exclusive first round coverage of the 2008 WNBA Draft presented by adidas with continued coverage of the second and third rounds on both ESPNU and NBA TV. WNBA.com will serve as the premier destination for complete analysis and comprehensive coverage throughout all three rounds.

 

This marks the third straight year that a Yellow Jacket will participate in the pre-draft camp. Kasha Terry, a current member of the Indiana Fever, participated in the camp two seasons ago in Boston and Stephanie Higgs, a former Tech standout, took part in the event last season in Cleveland.

 

In addition to the WNBA’s Pre-Draft Camp on April 4-5 and WNBA Draft on April 9, Tampa will host the NCAA Women’s Final Four on April 6 and 8 at the St. Pete Times Forum as well as the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association National Convention.
