Elissa Cunane(Northern Guilford High School/N.C. State) to Seattle Storm in Round Two of WNBA Draft
WNBA Draft Round Two:
17) Seattle Storm: Elissa Cunane, NC State

**********I think Elissa, “The Big Smile”, is going to prove these draft characters ‘dead wrong’….They let her go, and she slipped down several notches in the draft order, but the feeling here is, she will show them that they made a big mistake, not taking the “Big Smile”, earlier in this 2022 WNBA Draft….**********

RIP Elissa Cunane’s grandfather…..
Cunane, William “Bill” John
