Tulsa beat the Sparks last night at Staples Center, 77-75. They snapped a 20-game losing streak.
At halftime, the Sparks had announced that former star center Lisa Leslie is now part of the team’s ownership group. In her acceptance, Leslie said that “women need to support women.” That’s so, so booyah.
In the meantime, Candace Parker wore her orange shoes to support Pat Summitt, and pledges to continue fundraising for the Alzheimer’s Association. (Lailaa keeps getting cuter, somehow)
On that tip, Kara Lawson of the Connecticut Sun was inspired enough by the “wear orange day” to lead her team over the Mercury.
