It’s official. Former South Dakota State women’s basketball standout Macy Miller is headed to the WNBA.

Miller was taken by the defending champion Seattle Storm with the 36th and final pick in Wednesday’s draft, adding WBNA draft selection to her already lengthy list of accolades.

However, there was some confusion surrounding the draft’s final section.

A graphic shown by ESPN on the live broadcast had Miller’s name in the 36th slot, but minutes later Kentucky guard Maci Morris’ name was shown in the same position.

Shortly after the television mishap, the Storm’s official Twitter account announced Miller as the selection, but the tweet was deleted within minutes of being posted.

For 15 minutes Jackrabbits and Wildcats alike waited for clarity regarding the situation — it came in the form of another tweet.

In it, the Storm confirmed Miller will be headed to the Emerald City to continue her basketball career.

Miller’s professional basketball journey will presumably start Saturday, May 25, when the Storm host the Phoenix Mercury in their first game of the 2019 season. The game will be televised on ABC at 2:30 p.m., according to
