Arlington, TX –The Dallas Wings have signed guard Leticia Romero. Romero, who was originally drafted by the Connecticut Sun with the 16th pick in the 2017 WNBA Draft, will wear #10 for the Wings.
“We felt we needed more production from our bench, “Wings President & CEO Greg Bibb stated. “Leticia is a young guard with international experience who we expect will provide quality minutes in support of our starters once acclimated to our system.”
Romero, a 5-8 native of Las Palmas, Spain who competed collegiately at Florida State, brings international experience to the roster after playing with the Spanish National Team and helping the side win the 2017 European Women’s Basketball Championship. She also played a big role in helping her country qualify for the Olympic Games in 2016, where the team won a silver medal. Romero was the second youngest player on that roster, which included current and former WNBA players Astou Ndour, Anna Cruz, and Marta Xargay.
During her senior season at Florida State (2016-17), Romero was named All-America Honorable Mention (AP), All-ACC Second Team and led the ACC in three-point field goal percentage (50.9 %). During the 2015-16 season, she was named Honorable Mention All-America (WBCA), and averaged 16.3 points per game, 3.1 rebounds and 4.4 assists.
