"Drafted" is a word that a few days ago added a page of history to the book of Italian basketball. Lorela Cubaj, 23 years old, from Terni (Perugia), center of the Italian national team, already bronze at the Under 16 European Championships and silver at the Under 17 World Championships, was the fifth Italian player in history to be chosen at the WNBA draft. It hadn't happened for 15 years.

She was the 18th pick of the Seattle Storm, but will play in the Big Apple with the New York Liberty. 10 points, 11.3 rebounds and 4.3 assists were his averages in his final NCAA season at Georgia Tech. "Defensive Player of the Year last year." On the court she has an incredible sense of rebounding, she's very good under the basket, she passes the ball like a guard, she's a defensive wall and she's improving her outside shooting to be an even more complete player.
