All-Hungry Team

Had a twit-discussion with some people a short time ago. Based on some monster performances tonight, and season showings so far, the All-Hungry Team – via nominations – is, in no order:

Nneka Ogwumike
Glory Johnson
Tina Charles
Candace Parker
Tamika Catchings
Karima Christmas
Tayler Hill
Elena Delle Donne
Maya Moore
Sugar Rodgers

Tonight’s results:

The Dream downed the Storm, 77-64, to snap a six-game losing streak. Sancho Lyttle paced Atlanta with 22 points and 11 rebounds.

The Lynx rallied past the Sky, 87-82. Maya Moore carried Minnesota with 33 points and Elena Delle Donne put up 38 for Chicago.

Game recap.

Glory Johnson posted 23 points and a WNBA season high 22 rebounds in leading the Wings past the Mercury, 77-74. What a great series between those two teams. It was only the 15th 20-20 game in league history.
