WNBA invites Dickson to draft



All Jessica Dickson has to do is pick out shoes.

USF's all-time leading scorer got home from two days at the WNBA's pre-draft camp in Cleveland on Saturday and got the news she was hoping for: she's been invited back to Cleveland to attend Wednesday's WNBA Draft in person.

Dickson, who has a good chance to be one of 13 players taken in the draft's first round, already picked out a cream-colored suit for the draft and said Saturday she needs only pick out a pair of shoes. The Connecticut Sun, who have the final two picks of the opening round, had a personal interview with Dickson after Friday's workouts, so don't be surprised if she ends up there.

More to come from Cleveland, and expect an update from the men's coaching search in Atlanta, where former Marquette and Tennessee coach Kevin O'Neill is a name that keeps coming up as a new candidate, right there with Arkansas' Stan Heath. Athletic director Doug Woolard said late Saturday afternoon that "no decision has been made" as it relates to hiring a coach to replace Robert McCullum.
