Murriel Page was the first ever draft pick of the WNBA's Washington Mystics

Washington, D.C. (from www.wnba.com) – Current University of Florida women’s basketball assistant coach and Gator All-American Murriel Page has been voted to the Washington Mystics' All-Time team. Page joins current Mystics player Crystal Langhorne as members on the Mystics All-Time team.

 

The All-Time team will be unveiled on August 19, which will mark the Mystics' first game following the Olympic break. Each week leading up to August 19, a new member of the team will be announced.

 

A 6'2 forward/center from the University of Florida, Page was the first player selected by the franchise in the first round (third overall) in the 1998 WNBA draft. Known as the "Original Mystic," Page spent eight seasons with the team. During that time, she helped lead the Mystics to three playoff appearances (2000, 2002, and 2004), including the 2002 Eastern Conference Finals.

 

In addition, Page has had an extensive international career, playing for a decade in Spain.

During her collegiate career at the University of Florida, Page was a First Team All-American and was named to consecutive First Team All-SEC teams. In 2009, she was inducted into her alma mater's hall of fame where she currently serves as assistant coach for the women's basketball team.

 

Celebrating their 15th season, the WNBA's Washington Mystics are owned and operated by Monumental Sports & Entertainment, which is one of the largest integrated sports and entertainment companies in the country with one of the most diverse partnership groups in all of sports.
