News about seasons

One of my longtime favorite players, Alana Beard, will miss the entire WNBA season this year due to ankle tendon damage. How sad. And I do believe the Washington Mystics are cursed.

The New York Liberty waived point guard Loree Moore last week, but the Seattle Storm picked her up today. Moreover, Coach Brian Agler seems pretty excited about it. This is interesting:

“She had an opportunity to look around,” said Agler. “She looked at a variety of teams. I think Seattle was somebody she liked, but we also pursued her. I think she sort of sees herself fitting into a role here, and it could turn into a very substantial role.”

In WNBA trade news today, the Tulsa Shock traded Crystal Kelly to San Antonio for Shanna Crossley.

More Euroleague musings, and this time they’re Janel McCarville’s.

Chiney Ogwumike has a nice guest blog on slamonline about the recent McDonald’s All-American game, of which she was a part.
