SECAUCUS, N.J. (AP) -- The Connecticut Sun won the top pick in the WNBA draft lottery on Tuesday.

The Tulsa Shock earned the second pick with the San Antonio Silver Stars getting the third choice and the New York Liberty receiving the fourth pick.

Connecticut, which finished last in the Eastern Conference last season, had a 44 percent chance of winning the top pick. New York and Tulsa each had a 23 percent chance and San Antonio has a 10 percent chance. Only once since the league instituted a lottery before the 2002 draft has it gone according to the odds. That happened in 2009.

Top prospects in this year's draft include Chiney Ogwumike of Stanford, Odyssey Sims of Baylor and Alyssa Thomas of Maryland.
