CORVALLIS, Ore--- Oregon State standout Mikayla Pivec was drafted 25th overall by the Atlanta Dream, in Friday's 2020 WNBA Draft.
Pivec was selected as the first pick in the third and final round.
“You grow up watching these amazing players, and being able to be on that stage will be a huge accomplishment. I’m somebody that is going to do all of the little things for the team, and do whatever it takes,” said Pivec.
The players did not get to go on a stage at the WNBA Draft, as it was held virtually due to concerns over the coronavirus pandemic.
Pivec was projected by ESPN.com to be the 23rd selection to the Connecticut Sun. If she was picked there, she would have still been picked in the second round.
As a Beaver, Pivec was an All-America Honorable Mention from the Associated Press, Women's Basketball Coaches' Association, and the US Basketball Writers Association in 2020.
In 2020, Pivec averaged 14.8 points and 9.3 rebounds per game. She set Oregon State's career rebounding record in the Pac-12 tournament. She finished second in the Pac-12 in rebounding and fifth in field goal percentage.
It may take a little while for Pivec to debut for the Dream. The WNBA announced back on April 3 that it will postpone the start of the 2020 season, which was slated to start on May 15, 2020.
