Alex DiFilippo from SignonSanDiego.com: Houston: Pick No. 30 and playing like No. 1
Charde Houston is proving she was a steal as a third-round pick in last year's WNBA draft.

The San Diego High graduate, who holds California's record with 3,837 points in her high school career, is making a huge impact for the team that took a chance and selected her 30th overall, the Minnesota Lynx.

Despite falling further than she would have expected in the draft after an up-and-down college career at Connecticut — where she received AP All-America honorable mention twice but saw her minutes cut by almost half her senior season — Houston is making the most of her sophomore campaign for the Lynx. She's performing like a first-round pick for Minnesota, which is tied for first place in the Western Conference.
