2023 WNBA Draft was most-viewed WNBA Draft since 2004

Yesterday's broadcast of the 2023 WNBA Draft became the most-watched women's draft in decades.

The 2023 WNBA Draft averaged 572,000 viewers on ESPN, which was a 42% increase over last year.

It's the second most-viewed WNBA Draft of all-time, trailing only the 2004 WNBA Draft (which saw Diana Taurasi go No. 1 overall to the Phoenix Mercury). The first five selections in the 2004 WNBA Draft all went on to become All-Stars: Taurasi, Alana Beard, Nicole Powell, Lindsay Whalen and Shameka Christon.

This continues an incredible run for women's basketball, as LSU's recent victory over Iowa in the women's national championship game became the most-viewed NCAA women’s basketball game on record – with 9.9 million average viewers and a peak viewership of 12.6 million.

South Carolina star Aliyah Boston was selected with the No. 1 overall pick by the Indiana Fever. For a complete list of the 2023 WNBA Draft selections, click here.
