TULSA, OK -- Former Gonzaga women's basketball star Vivian Frieson was cut by the Tulsa Shock on Wednesday.  Frieson was a third-round draft choice by the Shock, becoming the first player in Gonzaga history to be selected in the WNBA draft.

Frieson averaged 12.5 points and 7.4 rebounds in her senior season at Gonzaga.  She improved those numbers in the NCAA Tournament, averaging 16.0 points, 8.7 rebounds, 3.0 assists, and 3.0 blocks during the Zags' run to the Sweet 16.

Former Bulldog teammate Heather Bowman is a training camp invitee with the Seattle Storm and remains on that team's roster.
