Six players projected to be first-round picks in our third WNBA mock draft will play Friday in the Women's Final Four in Tampa, Florida. In all, 12 players from Baylor, UConn, Notre Dame and Oregon are included among espnW's projection for all three rounds of the April 10 WNBA draft.

We're including draft-eligible juniors, as designated by an asterisk, but these players have not officially announced their plans. Tynice Martin of West Virginia, who was projected as a late second-round pick in our last installment, announced last week that she would not enter the draft and is staying for her senior season.

South Florida's Kitija Laksa, whom we also had as a second-round selection, announced Sunday she will not enter this WNBA draft, but did not say if she would return to the Bulls. The senior suffered a knee injury in South Florida's third game and missed the rest of the season. She could get a medical hardship waiver to be able to play another year in college, but didn't indicate if she would pursue that. She said she was focused on rehabbing her knee.
