Both WNBA and USA Basketball practiced today in preparation for the game this weekend. The Hartford Courant has some good “ramblings” about the game. WNBA President Donna Orender has some pretty corporate-sounding thoughts on the game.
In the meantime, replacements are coming out of the woodwork. Lindsay Whalen will replace San Antonio’s Becky Hammon, who suffered a quadriceps injury in last night’s game against Minnesota. And as previously mentioned, Monique Currie and Lindsey Harding will replace Lauren Jackson and Sancho Lyttle, who both have concussions.
