BREAKING: Veronica Burton selected 7th overall by Dallas Wings in 2022 WNBA Draft

Dallas isn’t ready for the Backcourt Burglar.

After four memorable years at Northwestern, Veronica Burton was selected as the seventh overall pick by the Dallas Wings in the first round of the 2022 WNBA Draft.

The 27th-ranked guard in the high school class of 2018, Burton started every contest her freshman year in the purple and white. She would remain a starter for all but one game her entire career, leading the Wildcats to a Big Ten regular season championship in 2020 and a NCAA Tournament berth in 2021.

Though she put up significant numbers each season, Burton’s senior year was undoubtedly her most successful.
