2016 WUBA Draft

ATLANTA - The GIE Lady Matrix select Lynette Holmes (6'0''-G/F-92, college: Langston) with the first overall pick of the 2016 WUBA draft.

Holmes climbed on stage to the sound of cheers from a Atlanta-filled crowd hoping he could bring the Lady Matrix one step closer to a championship.

The night before Holmes displayed her ability at the WUBA Classic fueled by RedBull. She finished the game with 21 points, 6 rebounds and 3 assists. She was later named ReBull Player of the Game.

GIE Lady Matrix grabbed the versatile 6-foot-0 forward from Langston University (NAIA) who averaged 28.2 points, 9.8 rebounds and 3.8 assists to become the only player in NAIA history to finish in the top three in all three categories. Holmes would later be named the nationals top scorer along with National Player of the Year honors under coach Cheryl Miller .

She comes with some questions -- experience -- but too much production for the Matrix to pass up with their first No. 1 pick since taking Patechia Hartman (5'8''-G-83, college: Georgia St.) 5 years ago.

"She has alot to prove" Coach Barnes said. I expect her to be the next Kristina King (5'11''-G/F-92, college: Richmond). Anything else shes underachieving.

Holes 23, has a questionable past. After leading Xavier University in scoring as a sophomore she decided to leave for The University of Arizona. After the NCAA failed to clear the star swingman she transferred to Langston University to play for a legend. Holmes would go on to break 4 NAIA scoring records including a few 50 point nights. She named to the 2014 and 2015 All-American list.

"Sky is the limit for Lynette", said Barnes. Its all up to her how far we go. I expect nothing but dominance from her.

Coach J.D. Barnes has a long history of running a pro factory with the WUBA brand. Kristina King was selected in the first round for the Lady Matrix in 2015; she would later be named League MVP and sign with Esperance Sportive Pully (Switzerland). King is currently ranked 3rd in scoring (21.8ppg) in the LNA.

The GIE Lady Matrix also selected Ariel Butts (6'3''-C-93, agency: Gamble Sports Management) from Rutgers along with sharp shooting guard Briana Williams (5'7''-G-92, college: Mercer) from Mercer. The Lady Matrix will play their second game Sunday January 8 versus rival Atlanta Legends.   

Since 2012, the WUBA has consistently produced a number of documented FIBA call-ups for USA women players. The WUBA has an extensive body of work which includes some of the leagues top players getting their very first professional overseas contract. Not only that, the WUBA has also revitalized the careers of former NCAA and WNBA Draftees with prior professional history allowing them a number of second wind opportunities to review their overseas careers. WUBA players have received call-u...   [read more]
