WNBA and high school news

Members of the WNBA and USA squads visited ESPN headquarters this morning to promote Sunday’s all-star game.

Monique Currie and Lindsey Harding were named as alternates on the teams.

Interesting: though Candace Parker is out for the season and Lisa Leslie is retired, their jerseys are still the first- and third-best sellers, respectively. The Sparks have the best-selling WNBA merchandise, too.

On the health and fitness tip:

Storm point guard Sue Bird talked to ESPN Rise Magazine about the importance of conditioning and eating healthfully.

The Shock’s Shanna Crossley talks about her workouts.

More on Justine Hartman’s decision to go to UCLA.

Great ESPN feature on a young California “silent assassin” who is tough as nails.


  1. Re summer tournaments, I love UNC-Charlotte coach Karen Aston's tweet:

    "It would be wonderful if they turned the air off in Orlando. I can't feel my feet!"

  2. 🙂 Hard to imagine that problem here on the west coast right now.

    NC State's Kellie Harper tweeted the other day that she had just spent two days watching basketball and now was on a red eye to the next tournament.

    "It must be July."
