Four former Lady Vols selected in WNBA draft

BRISTOL, Conn. (WVLT) -- Four former Lady Vols were drafted in Monday's WNBA draft.

Guard Shekinna Stricklen was selected by Seattle with the second pick.

Two selections later, former Glory Johnson was drafted by Tulsa.

New York had the surprise pick of the first round. The Liberty took former Lady Vol center Kelley Cain with the seventh overall pick.

Cain left Tennessee after the 2010-2011 season. The 6'6" center still had a year of eligibility with the Lady Vols. In January she signed to play professional basketball in Turkey.

Forward Vicki Baugh was selected as the 25th overall pick by Tulsa.
