Senior Gonzaga Bulldogs forward Zykera Rice has been invited by the Seattle Storm to participate in their training camp, starting on Sunday, May 5.
She is the ninth player in program history to either be drafted or invited to a WNBA training camp, joining the likes of Courtney Vandersloot, Vivian Freison, Heather Bowman, Kayla Standish, Katelan Redmon, Haiden Palmer, Shelby Chelsek, and Jill Barta.
“I feel amazing, and just blessed to have the opportunity to attend a camp back home on the west side,” Rice said. “I used to go watch the Storm play when I was younger, so I feel like things are kind of coming full circle.”
Rice was one of the anchors of the most successful womens’ program in school history. She led the Zags with 15 points and 5.8 rebounds per game, and she finished her collegiate career as the 23rd Zag in school history to eclipse 1,000 career points.
The Seattle Storm are the reigning WNBA Champions.
