Former Kentucky guard Maci Morris will have an opportunity to make her professional basketball dreams come true.
Today, Morris accepted a training camp invite from the WNBA’s Washington Mystics with her eyes on a roster spot.

Training camp will take place in early May in Washington, D.C.
As a senior, Morris averaged 15.1 points per game with a team-hight 75 3-pointers and 45.2 percent overall from deep. She finished her career ranked sixth all-time in scoring with 1,692 points, while her 252 career 3-pointers made ranks second all-time. Morris’ career mark of 41.1% from three ranks No. 1 in Kentucky school history.
Back on April 11, ESPN reported on its main ticker that the Seattle Storm had selected Morris with the 36th and final pick of the WNBA Draft.
Instead, it was actually South Dakota State’s Macy Miller who had been chosen.

It won’t be with Seattle as she thought for a split-second on draft night, but she’ll still have her shot in the WNBA next season.
