Indiana Fever select guard Kysre Gondrezick with No. 4 overall pick in 2021 WNBA Draft

West Virginia's Kysre Gondrezick puts up a shot during the first half of an NCAA college basketball game against Baylor in the final round of the Big 12 Conference tournament in Kansas City, Mo, Sunday, March 14, 2021.

The screams of elation and excitement echo from Indiana Fever coach Marianne Stanley's phone before their newest draft pick appears on screen.

"I'm ready to get to work," Gondrezick said as the palpable joy in her words elicited cheers from the Fever's coaching staff and general manager Tamika Catchings.

Point guard Julie Allemand acquitted herself well as a rookie, taking over the starting role after Erica Wheeler missed the season due to COVID-19 protocol.

Catchings said Gondrezick can play both guard spots, but the Fever want to move to a more position-less lineup with Teaira McCowan in the middle surrounded by versatile pieces.

Her mother, Lisa, won a national championship as a player at Louisiana Tech, and her sister, Kalabrya played at Michigan State.
