Samuelson will join up with former teammate Gabby Williams and former Husky Stefanie Dolson on the Sky. Last season, Chicago finished 10th in the WNBA with a 13-21 record. Samuelson is the second former UConn player to be drafted by the Sky.
Both players are certainly excited about Samuelson joining the team.

Samuelson came to UConn as strictly a sharpshooter from three before developing a strong all-around game. Over her four seasons, her rebound and assist numbers rose every year. At 6-foot-3, she presents a matchup problem on the outside as someone too big for guards to defend but too quick for bigs. At the very least, Samuelson will give the Sky a 3-point threat early in her career while she adjusts to the pro level.
