NEW YORK, New York – Oregon State standout Marie Gulich took the next step on her basketball journey Thursday, as she was selected by the Phoenix Mercury with the No. 12 overall pick in the WNBA Draft.


Gulich is the fourth Oregon State player selected in the last three WNBA Drafts, joining Sydney Wiese, Ruth Hamblin and Jamie Weisner Scott. Gulich was taken with the final pick of the opening round, joining Wiese as the only two first-rounders in Oregon State history.

Gulich earned All-Pac-12 honors of the second-straight season this year, and was also chosen as Pac-12 Media Defensive Player of the Year. The Cologne, Germany, native cemented her place as one of the top players in the nation, as she was named an ESPNW All-American, a Lisa Leslie Award semi-finalist and received a spot on the Naismith Trophy Mid-Season Watch List.

Gulich shot 65.2 percent from the floor in her senior season, and averaged 17.5 points and 9.1 rebounds per contest. She sits 13th in Oregon State history with 1,203 career points, and is fifth in program history with 843 career rebounds. She also blocked a Pac-12 leading 95 shots in her senior year, giving her 193 career rejections, the third-highest total in program history.

The WNBA opens training camp on April 29. The Mercury will open their preseason slate on May 8 vs. the Seattle Storm, before tipping off the regular season on May 18 against the Dallas Wings.
