Afte breaking so many records at SU, Syracuse Orange women's basketball center Kayla Alexander can add more accolade to the mantle. She became the second-ever Syracuse player selected in the WNBA draft when she picked 8th overall by the San Antonio Silver Stars.

"I give God all the glory right now," Alexander said. "I am extremely thankful and blessed for this opportunity. When you work hard, dreams can and do come true. I am so thankful right now and beyond excited."

She's the first Syracuse player to be picked since Beth Record in the 2001 draft. Record was selected in the fourth round.

Alexander leaves Syracuse as the school's all-time leader in points (2,024), blocks (350), field goals (736), free throws made (552) and games played (140). She was also named All-American Honorable Mention and All-Big East First Team.

Alexander joins Iasia Hemingway, Juanita Ward, Vaida Sipaviciute, Fantasia Goodwin, Julie McBride, Leigh Aziz and Record as WNBA players from Syracuse.

San Antonio went 21-13 last season and lost in the first round of the playoffs. The WNBA season begins May 24th.
