Paris Twins Headin' Home to Cali in the WNBA
The golden state, home, is the destination of seniors Courtney and Ashley Paris for both of their professional careers.
Courtney and Ashley were chosen as the 7th and 22nd overall pick respectively in the WNBA draft.
Courtney Paris will play for the Sacramento Monarchs and Ashley for the Los Angeles Sparks.
Courtney Paris' pick was the highest any Sooner had attained since Stacy Dales was picked third in the 2002 draft.
Courtney was also named the Lowes Senior Class award recipient this season as well as Big 12 Player of the Year.
The Monarchs went 20-19 last season and lost in their conference semifinals to San Antonio.
The Sparks were the WNBA champions in 2001 and 2002.
