Columbia, Mo. - Mizzou senior forward Bri Kulas was selected by the San Antonio Stars in the third round of the WNBA Draft on Monday, April 14. Kulas was the 28th overall pick, making her the seventh Tiger in program history to be chosen in the draft and first since Christine Flores in 2012.

"I am absolutely thrilled for Bri," head coach Robin Pingeton said. "This is a great honor for both her and our program. Bri has worked extremely hard for this opportunity and she has proven all season long that she has the ability to play at this level. It has been remarkable to watch her grow both as a player and as a leader and I am confident she is more than ready for this next phase of her playing career. She has a true passion for the game and it will be fun for all of us to continue watching her play."

Kulas joins former Tigers Christine Flores (Phoenix Mercury, 2012), LaToya Bond (Charlotte Sting, 2006), Christelle N'Garsanet (New York Liberty, 2006), Evan Unrau (Washington Mystics, 2004), Amanda Lassiter (Houston Comets, 2001; currently with the Chicago Sky), and Marlena Williams (Indiana Fever, 2001), among Mizzou's seven all-time WNBA draft selections.

An All-SEC First Team selection, Kulas averaged a team-leading 18.3 points per game her senior season on 43.5-percent shooting. In just two years as a Tiger, Kulas surpassed 1,000 points, becoming the 32nd Tiger to reach the millennium mark. Kulas started in 62 of her 63 games as a Tiger, averaging more than 29 minutes on the court per game. She was a 78.6-percent career free throw shooter and also averaged 6.6 rebounds per game throughout her career.

 

 

The Stars begin their regular season at home against Tulsa on Saturday, May 17. The team will also face the Shock twice in preseason play on May 2nd and May 6th.
