TUCSON, Ariz. (KGUN) — Arizona Women's Basketball star Aari McDonald declared for the 2021 WNBA Draft on Tuesday.

McDonald, a 5'6" senior guard who averaged 18.8 points per game during the regular season and 20.6 points per game in the NCAA tournament, made her announcement via Twitter.

She was eligible to return for a fifth season after the NCAA granted seniors an extra year due to COVID-19.

McDonald is projected as a top ten draft selection.

McDonald was the Pac-12 Player of the Year and Pac-12 Co-Defensive Player of the Year.

She also led Arizona to the national championship game, losing to Stanford 54-53.
