Big things that went down today

I remember the Seattle Storm’s first triple-overtime game on July 3, 2001. They had another one today on the road, in Phoenix. The Storm hung on to win, 111-107, despite Diana Taurasi’s 44 points. That would have been so fun to watch.


Chiney Ogwumike has been named Gatorade’s 2010 Female High School Athlete of the Year. She was honored at a ceremony in Los Angeles today. She was also featured as a special guest on the ESPY Awards show.

Ogwumike led her high school team to a seventh-place national ranking and the Texas Class 5A state tournament title this past season. She averaged 22.9 points, 13.9 rebounds, 3.5 steals and 2.1 blocks playing 18 minutes per game.
