BRISTOL, Conn. - The Minnesota Lynx looked to bolster their back court Monday night taking Nebraska guard Lindsey Moore with the 12th overall pick in the WNBA Draft.

In the second round, the Lynx used the 14th pick to select forward Sugar Rodgers of Georgetown. The 5-foot-11 forward was a four-time All-Big East team member, averaging 19.4 points per game for her career. Rodgers averaged 22.9 points and 6.9 rebounds per game as a senior.

With the 24th overall pick, the Lynx chose Colorado guard Chucky Jeffery. Jeffery was a selected to the All-Pac 12 team after her junior and senior seasons. During her junior year, Jeffery led her team in scoring (15.5), rebounding (8.0), assists (3.8) and steals (2.3).

The Lynx chose Waltiea Rolle with 36th overall pick. The 6-foot-6 center from North Carolina scored 12.1 points and 2.5 blocks per game as a senior with the Tarheels. Rolle is a native of Nassau, Bahamas.
