The amazing story behind Kate Martin getting surprised by the Aces drafting her, as told by TikTok

If you watched the WNBA Draft, you likely know that several of the draftees had their teammates in the audience to support them.

Paige Bueckers and Azzi Fudd were there to support Aaliyah Edwards, and Jada Gyamfi and Kate Martin were there to back Caitlin Clark.

But what happens when you come to draft to show some love to a friend and actually get drafted? That’s exactly what happened to one Iowa Hawkeye.

The moment Iowa’s Kate Martin heard her name called at the WNBA Draft 🤩

Kate Martin proudly arrived at the WNBA Draft Monday night to support Caitlin and hoped that she might hear her name called as well. She was right.

The Las Vegas Aces drafted her at pick No.18 during the second round.

Interestingly enough, one media personality and another avid hoops fan believe that Martin may have known that the moment was coming sooner than it was shown on television.

Watch the video here:

According to TikTok stars Aliyah Funschelle of Moolah Kicks and Coach Jackie J, Martin was suddenly moved to the end of an aisle — likely for more visibility — just before her name was called.

Then, a cameraman was strategically placed on her.
