Makayla Epps’ ultimate dream came true last week when she was drafted into the WNBA.
She was drafted No. 33 overall by the Chicago Sky.
"It was a surreal feeling," said Epps, the leading scorer for the Wildcats her senior season. "That's always been my childhood dream. That's the reason I picked up a ball. I wanted to get drafted, so to see my name come across, pick 33, round three to Chicago, I busted out into tears. My childhood dreams have been fulfilled, and it was just a really good feeling."
