Chelsea Poppens, Iowa State
: Brittney Griner, Kayla Pedersen and Jantel Lavender. Players linked by bright futures as WNBA lottery picks. They're also players linked by trailing Poppens in rebounds per 40 minutes last season. That might be a bit of a convenient gimmick statistic, but it's not a mirage. As a freshman, the 6-2 Poppens led the Cyclones with 7.2 rebounds per game, lending a strong dose of physical athleticism to a team most often linked to the 3-point line when it comes to basketball word association. She's an unfinished offensive product, but as she showed in putting up 9 points and 8 rebounds (including three offensive rebounds) against Connecticut in the NCAA tournament, she's not going to back down from anyone.
