Toppa the mornin’

USA Basketball:

Hoopfeed interviewed Renee Montgomery about her USA Basketball experience this week.

Brittney Griner made a big impression at USA training camp……and the experience seems to have made an even bigger impression on her. This is an impressive statement for a 20-year-old:

“I needed to get another year under my belt,” she said. “I needed to work on different things and get stronger. Get more mature mentally.”

Too bad more people don’t have those kind of metacognitive skills.

Pro:

Washington’s Alana Beard, who turns 29 today, has had a long journey back from her injury.

Never say never – Diana Taurasi will play in Turkey again next season after all.

Nicole Ohlde has retired.

The Storm’s Ashley Robinson modeled last night at a Seattle fashion show. I hope there are pictures of the event.

College:

Are people really still having trouble getting over the departure of former UCLA coach Nikki Caldwell? One LA columnist says so.

Bonus:

There was a pro women’s team almost 40 years ago called the Red Heads. Love the pictures…….
