General Manager and head coach for the Washington Mystics, Mike Thibault, announces the addition of former Oregon State Women’s basketball guard, Jamie Weisner, to the Mystics roster.

Prior to her contract with the Mystics, Weisner obtained a host of accolades during her collegiate career. She was named Pac- 12 player of the year after leading the Beavers to their second straight Pac-12 conference title averaging 17.5 points and 5.6 rebounds a game. With a career high of 38 points in the sweet sixteen, Weisner propelled the Beavers to their first Final Four appearance in the program’s history, where she was named WBCA All-American.

Weisner was drafted in the second round as the 17th overall pick of the WNBA draft to the Connecticut Sun.

According to her former teammate, Marie Gülich, sophomore power forward for the beavers, “Jamie’s work ethic is inspiring. I’ve never seen somebody put in that much work every day.”

“Playing in one of the toughest conference in the nation has prepared me for the speed of the game at the next level,” said Weisner. With her experience at Oregon State and her work ethic, Weisner will be given a well-deserved opportunity to make a name for herself with the Mystics.

“I am excited to watch her play. This is what she worked for,” says senior guard for the beavers, Jen’von’ta Hill.
