Here's a look at the vital information for Monday's WNBA Draft.
Location: The WNBA Draft is set to take place at the studios of ESPN, live in Bristol, Connecticut. It's a fitting location, in some ways, as Maya Moore, from Storrs, Connecticut, will come off the board first during Monday's draft.
Start time: It's a midday start for the WNBA Draft as coverage begins at noon here on the West Coast.
TV information: Since ESPN is hosting the draft, it'd make sense the networks flagship station would broadcast the proceedings. ESPN will have the coverage beginning at noon for fans tracking the action at home. If you're unable to get to a TV, the draft will also be broadcast online on ESPN3.
Prospects in attendance: Not surprisingly, Moore will be in attendance for the 2011 WNBA Draft. Vandersloot will also be joining her, along with Australia's Elizabeth Cambage, Ohio State's Jantel Lavender and Texas A&M's Danielle Adams, fresh off her 2011 national championship.
