The WNBA Draft is scheduled for Monday at 8 p.m. in Uncasville, Conn., and Villa Maria graduate Kayla McBride is considered a likely first-round pick.

The former Notre Dame guard, who concluded her career in the NCAA championship game Tuesday, is coveted by WNBA teams because she’s a big guard who can handle the ball, shoot and pass.

Where will McBride end up? It’s not clear, but the most recent mock draft on the WNBA website has the 5-foot 11-inch guard going No. 4 overall to the New York Liberty.

Here’s what Jim Reilly of WNBA.com wrote about McBride:

“The Erie, PA native competed in four straight Final Fours with the Fighting Irish and is a savvy playmaker who impressed as a member of the 2014-16 USA Basketball National Team Player Pool, a good indication of McBride’s potential to make the leap from college to the pros.”

McBride is one of 12 players who will be on hand for the draft, which can be seen be seen Monday at 8 p.m. on ESPN2.
