For the second time in a week, UB star guard Cierra Dillard has been released by a WNBA team.

Dillard, who was picked up off waivers by the LA Sparks after being released by the Minnesota Lynx, tweeted a thank you to Los Angeles.

“Thank you LA for the experience & lessons,” Dillard wrote.  “Also getting to know what I can bring to the table, and also being so very real with me! There’s a timing for everything. Getting and staying ready for overseas & future opportunities. I will shock people again very soon!”

Dillard was selected 20th overall in the second round of the 2019 WNBA Draft by the Lynx in April.  This past season, the Rochester native finished second in the nation in scoring, averaging more than 25 points per game.

She also helped power the UB Women’s Basketball team to their second Mid-American Conference Championship for the second time in four years.  Dillard and the Bulls also advanced to the second round of the NCAA Tournament before falling to UCONN.
