WNBA final cut day and All-Star prep

Today was the WNBA’s final cut day, and the league hasn’t updated their transactions page. So far we have officially that Angie Bjorklund was waived by the Sky. Krystal Thomas was cut from the Storm, and Doneeka Lewis from the Shock (Karmia Christmas was signed in her place). Hopefully we get word about the other transactions soon.

In time for the All-Star game, the Tina Charles-Sylvia Fowles rivalry is growing.

The Lynx’ Maya Moore will be blogging this weekend.

John Altavilla of the Hartford Courant has his votes in various categories thus far in the season.

WNBA extra:

The Storm isn’t getting what it wanted out of Katie Smith. That’s harsh.

College bonus:

Tennessee sophomore guard Kamiko Williams had successful surgery on her torn ACL this morning.

Celebrating women extra:

The joys of coaching female athletes. I’m going to add: female athletes really care about each other, whether it’s in-season or off-season. And so many lifelong friendships are formed through sport.
