Correct!

Though there have been 7 titles, there have been just 24 starters over those games. Of the 22 that have graduated, 18 have gone on to play in the WNBA (82%).

From Maria's Bio:
"Maria played in Germany, then Iceland where she helped her team to win the Icelandic Cup Tournament receiving first team Icelandic Honors and Most Valuable Player of the Cup Championship Game. Sadly during one of the playoff games, Maria, while contesting a shot, injured her ankle splitting it in half. She needed reconstructive surgery."

Doesn't that count as professional?

How did that 2002 group do? Oh, 80% are in the WNBA playoffs 9 years later.

How about the 2009 group? Also 80% and Tiff is still a collegian. Impressive.

Plus Shea had her chance but went down to injury, most sadly.
