North Carolina women's basketball guard Paris Kea was selected No. 25 overall in the 2019 WNBA Draft on Wednesday night.
The redshirt senior was taken by the Indiana Fever with the first pick in the third round. She was the lone Tar Heel selected in the WNBA draft.
Kea, who began her college career at Vanderbilt, transferred to North Carolina after the 2014-2015 season and sat out the following year.
In her redshirt sophomore season, she led UNC in points (17.2) and assists per game (4.1). The 5-foot-9 guard ranked first in the ACC in minutes per game at 36.2 and ranked fourth in field goals made with 221.
As a junior, Kea was even better, averaging 19.4 points per game, the 10th-best total in program history. Kea totaled 30 or more points four different times and managed to still average 4.8 assists per game. Her efforts were rewarded with a First Team All-ACC selection.
