AMES, Iowa It wasn't long after the conclusion of the WNBA draft that a deal was struck for senior Hallie Christofferson to continue her basketball career. Christofferson will sign a free agent contract with the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury.
I am very excited for the opportunity to continue playing basketball, Christofferson said. I am looking forward to what Phoenix has in store for me as I head to draft camp.
Christofferson, a Hamlin, Iowa native, was a two-time Associated Press and WBCA Honorable Mention All-American and a two-time All-Big 12 first team selection. The forward led Iowa State in scoring for the second-consecutive season with 18.4 points. She scored in double figures in 29 of Iowa States 31 games, including 16 games with 20 or more points. She posted eight double-doubles and shot better than 50 percent from the field in 14 games.
This is a great opportunity for Hallie, head coach Bill Fennelly said. Phoenix was excited to bring her to camp, and I am sure they will find out quickly how special Hallie is on and off the court!
