Adut Bulgak has been selected by the New York Liberty with the 12th pick in the first round of the WNBA draft. Bulgak spent two years at Florida State. She played a big part in FSU's somewhat unexpected rise to the upper echelon of women's college basketball. Bulgak came to Florida State from Trinity Valley Community College. She was a WBCA All-American in both her junior and senior years in Tallahassee. Bulgak was a first team All-ACC selection in her junior year and a second team All-ACC selection in her senior year becoming the 10th Seminole to make the All-ACC team more than once. Bulgak averaged 12.7 points and 7.8 rebounds last year for FSU leading the team in rebounds.
Bulgak is the tenth player in Florida State history to be drafted into the WNBA. She is the third first rounder following Natasha Howard in 2014 (5th pick, Indiana Fever) and Jacinta Monroe in 2010 (6th pick, Washington Mystics).
The 6'4 Bulgak is going to a Liberty team that won the Eastern Conference last year with a 23-11 record. The Liberty lost in the Eastern Conference Finals to the Indiana Fever two games to one.
