WNBA training camp continues……………
The Seattle Storm is now holding training camp at Seattle Pacific University – a private Christian college. The most interesting part of this piece is the final three paragraphs:
Still, the union between the Storm and SPU is odd.
The school is an evangelical university with strict rules regarding sexuality, including disciplinary action for “homosexual sexual activities,” according to SPU’s student handbook. The Storm has out lesbians on its roster and employed by the front office, plus the owners regularly state the importance of having shared values with their business partners.
But as part of the rental agreement, Storm CEO Karen Bryant said a non-discrimination clause was included. And each party said the experience could be educational for both sides.
Those in Tulsa Shock training camp are going through “40 minutes of hell.” Hoopfeed tweeted earlier today that Coach Nolan Richardson was not putting up with anyone walking the ball up court.
In Chicago, the Sky are looking for leaders.
One unrelated NCAA note: Oregon State University signees are saying they’re not nervous in the wake of all the recent transfers, but they really are.
