April always starts out like a hurricaine or a drag race, with the last two or three rounds of the NCAA tournament. It trickles down to a very slow haul, as the WNBA prepares to launch, high school club ball teams are practicing more than they’re playing in games, and the Euroleague season is wrapping up.
There’s not much going on right now, and that’s a good thing. Not only does it give players and fans a needed mental break, but it makes the heart grow fonder. LA Sparks forward Delisha Milton-Jones helped bring home a championship to her Czech team this weekend. Earlier this morning she tweeted that she didn’t know what to do with all of her spare time now, that she was lost. It’s the same thing high school and college players have been going through for weeks now.
But not to despair. In only a few weeks it’ll be time for the WNBA’s 15th season, and all the youngstas will be ballin’ in high-profile tournaments.
In the meantime, there are a few quick items:
Candice Wiggins remembers when the WNBA started.
Former Stanford assistant Bobbie Kelsey is bringing a winning mindset to her new head coaching gig at Wisconsin.
