Malott, Hoover Both Selected in 2015 WNBA Draft in Historic Night

UNCASVILLE, Conn. -- For the first time in program history, not just one but two University of Dayton women's basketball players have been selected in the 2015 WNBA Draft. Graduating senior Ally Malott was selected as the eighth overall draft pick by the Washington Mystics and graduating senior Andrea Hoover was chosen 31st overall by the Los Angeles Sparks.
This is the first time an Atlantic 10 team has had two players drafted since Xavier in 2011 and Malott is the second-highest drafted Dayton student-athlete ever (John Horan - sixth 1955 NBA Draft).
"We have had the opportunity to see Ally in person 8 or 9 times, as well as watch her practice," said Mystics head coach and general manager Mike Thibault. "In my mind, she is the best definition of the modern "stretch four" in this draft. She is one of the best shooters in the draft at any position. She helps space the floor, can play around the basket and is a very good outlet passer to start the break."

One of the most prolific duos in Dayton history, Hoover and Malott set several new program records, including the most wins over a four-year period with 102 victories over 127 games during their tenure as Flyers. The two helped lead the team to NCAA Tournament appearances all four seasons they wore the Flyer uniform, including Dayton's first appearance in the NCAA Regional Final this season.

ATLANTA (AP) -- Julio Teheran gave up just three singles in six sharp innings and the Atlanta Braves beat the Cincinnati Reds 5-0 Sunday for a split of the four-game series.

Kelly Johnson and Jonny Gomes each homered for the Braves off Johnny Cueto (2-3).

Teheran (3-1), an NL All-Star last year, came into the game with a winning record despite three straight sub-par starts. He struck out five in a row during one point and fanned a season-high six overall.

Teheran was never threatened after the Braves built an early 4-0 lead. He walked two.

Three Atlanta relievers finished off the combined four-hitter.

Cueto was roughed up from the start, allowing five runs and nine hits in six innings.

Andrelton Simmons and Freddie Freeman hit back-to-back doubles in the first inning and Johnson followed that with a two-run drive. Johnson leads the Braves with five home runs.
