WVU guard Kysre Gondrezick declares for WNBA draft

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — Kysre Gondrezick is forgoing her “free” year at WVU with the intent of heading to the next level, she confirmed Tuesday on social media.

After averaging 19.5 points per game as a redshirt senior, Gondrezick will declare for the 2021 WNBA Draft.

“Playing for West Virginia has been the privilege of a lifetime. I can’t thank my coaches and teammates enough. Thank you for pushing me to be my very best every day. I am so proud of what we accomplished this season,” Gondrezick tweeted. “To the best fans in the country, thank you for always cheering me on night in and night out and making my time in Morgantown so special.”

The 5-foot-9 guard led the Mountaineers in scoring and assists, helping the team to a 22-7 mark and second round finish in the NCAA tournament. Gondrezick played three seasons at WVU after transferring from Michigan.

She took a big leap forward this year, improving her draft stock with her soaring offense, as well as the ability to play both shooting guard and point guard.

According to’s Mechelle Voepel, Gondrezick is projected to land with the New York Liberty with the No. 25 overall pick. She would be the 10th player in program history to be drafted into the WNBA.
