SEATTLE – The Seattle Storm today announced that 6-6 center Emily Potter has been waived.
Potter, a graduate of Utah, left the program boasting school records in single-season (89) and career blocks (215), and she was the first player in Utah women’s basketball history to register 1,500+ points, 1,000+ rebounds and 200+ blocks in a career. During her senior season, Potter was named All-Conference and All-Defensive honorable mention by the Pac-12 coaches, and she capped her college career ranked 11th in scoring (1,635) and fifth in rebounding (1,037). Potter’s final three seasons at Utah saw the Utes make consecutive trips to the WNIT, including a third-round appearance in 2016.
The Storm tips off the 2018 slate against the Phoenix Mercury on May 20 during Opening Night presented by Swedish, with start time set for 6 p.m. PT at KeyArena. The first 3,000 fans in attendance will receive a Sue Bird bobblehead to celebrate her league record-breaking assist last season at Washington, and her game-worn jersey from that contest will also be on display, allowing fans to take photos and capture a visual taste of WNBA history.
