Peters was taken third overall by the Minnesota Lynx
And Novosel was taken eighth overall by the Washington Mystics
Peters was the first top-3 pick in Notre Dame's history, according to Chris Masters.
Minnesota's head coach Cheryl Reeve on picking Peters third (ESPNU interview):
"We spent the entire collegiate season and even some of last season really evaluating Devereaux and we were just really pleased with the way that she plays the game ... she does things that win games. She defends, she rebounds, she passes and she fits well into our offensive system. And she's a person of great character. All of those things went into it."
Notre Dame's head coach Muffet McGraw on two of her players being selected (ESPNU interview):
"I feel like a proud parent. ... What a reward for the hard work that (Devereaux Peters) has put in over the years.
"(Natalie Novosel) is so crafty. She can do so many things with the ball. She can score in a lot of different ways.
"They're both great team players and they'll bring great team chemistry to those teams."
My 13 year old son talked to Natalie on ESPN chat after she got picked by DC. I don't know who was more excited today, her or him. Made his day.
