Goodrich Survives Final Cut; Makes Tulsa Shock Roster
May 24, 2013
LAWRENCE, Kan. – On April 15, Kansas point guard Angel Goodrich achieved a childhood dream after being chosen as the 29th overall pick in the 2013 WNBA Draft by the Tulsa Shock. That dream was realized Friday when the former Jayhawk was officially named to the opening day roster.
“I just feel stress-free and relieved,” Goodrich said about the news. “This has been a great experience. Camp was extremely competitive and for me to make the roster – the one word that keeps coming to mind is blessed. There were a lot of guards in camp and it was really competitive, which is exactly what the coaches want and expect. I’m just glad to have made the team.”
Goodrich, along with her new Shock teammates, will begin regular-season play Saturday when the Shock visits the Atlanta Dream for a 6 p.m. CT tip. On Monday, Tulsa hosts Washington in a game that will be televised on ESPN2 at 2 p.m. CT.
During the preseason, Goodrich played 61 minutes combined in all three games. In the final game, the Shock’s only victory, Goodrich started the contest and posted eight assists along with six points in over 34 minutes of action.
Goodrich joins Nakia Sanford (Seattle Storm) as former Jayhawks in the WNBA this season.
