Wallace will be a draft pick no doubt. Maybe round 2.

Well she didn't go to college has been p,aging professionally in wnbl fir 5 years and is just 20 , college grads are usually 22/23 when they finish. But you can also get offered spots away from draft pick, which is usually much better than getting in on the very last round and last player, they usually recruit over the top the following year with those situations.

Tupaea is not a PG (too slow) and is totally out of shape.
Surely they just had to view her profile pic.
Get into shape young lady (no excuses) and they may really take you.

Googled her photo and I have to say WTF.

Why is conditioning in Australia (for both men and women) so poor. Laziness/"she'll be right mate"?

I'm sorry but have you actually seen her play?! Her strength from her solid body is an asset. This is an amazing achievement by a young Australian that shouldn't be over-shadowed. Only up from here

I've seen Her play numerous times, she's a player that expends the least amount of energy ever, she does frequently seem to be in the right place at the right time .
Certainly not a PG , and her solid build will only get more solid the older she gets which may hamper any WNBA minutes as it's a fast paced game
WNBA would mean no sitting out at trainings and working your tail of to make sure your fit........
You need to nominate for the draft, first round picks are usually your impact players, second round as the ones that they look to develop, third round frequently make up numbers and are either traded or never get placed into the actual team.

But yes good luck to her,

The poster above gets it - that's why you work out to tone your natural build otherwise conditioning is no good.
