The Connecticut Sun came in Sunday with guns a-blazing to teach New York a lesson, despite not having a seed to win, but Cappie Pondexter wasn’t about to be schooled.She had 31 points, six of which were in overtime, and the Sun lost by one.So, Officer Awkward actually could be fired from the Memphis PD because she’s gay.
I know some of you will automatically say LJ, and Jackson definitely has had an MVP year.
But so have Catchings, Pondexter, Fowles and Mc Coughtry.
I know that’s quite a few games away, but I think the Liberty and the Fever are the two teams that want the title the most.
Well, no spoilers here, but I will put video highlights at the end of this post. Tonight, the New York Liberty faces the Indiana Fever at Madison Square Garden in a match-up that could determine who faces Seattle in the championship.
Still, the Sun has a better record than all but the first seed in the West.
(And if Tina Charles doesn’t win Rookie of the Year, I’ll eat pickled beets from the jar.)Here’s the bracket.
We knew that Officer Awkward married her partner Ashley Awkward (a former pro basketball player) in Canada two years ago and took Ashley’s last name.
She told Dara that the couple planned a ceremony in Memphis to celebrate the marriage.
Still, Diana Taurasi was the highest scorer in the WNBA and the team’s confidence probably got a boost from her contract extension this week.
The Silver Stars’ Sophia Young has been a scoring machine recently, but Becky Hammon’s performance probably will determine how far San Antonio gets in this series.
(Baseball is more important to ESPN2 than WNBA, so check ESPN360 online if the start of the game is preempted again.)As promised, here are highlight reels from Wednesday night’s games.
