WNBA[edit]

Novosel was selected in the first round of the 2012 WNBA Draft (8th overall) by the Washington Mystics.[3] Update 5/16/2013 Natalie Novosel cut by Washington Mystics before start of regular season.

Personal[edit]

Shortly after the draft, Novosel said that her first choice of teams was the Mystics, adding that she "couldn't be any happier" that the team selected her. She had personal reasons for wanting to play in Washington, most notably that her twin brother Nathan was set to begin a two-year position in the city with Teach for America in late summer 2012.[4]
