And In The First Round.....

Mystics Pick Maryland's Crystal Langhorne!

In what would be a surprise to some, but a perfect fit for many, the Washington Mystics selected 6'2 Crystal Langhorne in the first round of the WNBA Draft today at the Innisbrook Resort and Golf Club (owned by Mystics' Sheila Johnson) in Palm Harbor, FL.

Langhorne, whose résumé shouts 'top knotch' student/athlete, was instrumental in helping the Lady Maryland Terps secure a win over Coppin State in the NCAA Tournament opener.

Scoring 25 points and pulling down 12 rebounds Langhorne, and team mates, defeated State, 80-66.

The Mystics, hosts of the WNBA draft party at the Green Turtle Sports Bar just outside the Verizon Center earlier today, picked sixth in the first round.

Wow! Good choice, although Sylvia Fowles would have been a good pick also.

This is great news! Someone who is familiar with DC, becomes a Mystic. I know Crystal will mesh well in the Beard, Goring, Milton-Jones power house of Mystic players! Good luck to the Mystics this year!

Let's make the playoffs!
