Jockeying for playoff position

Seattle and Phoenix already know they’re meeting in the playoffs next week. Tonight’s last regular-season matchup between them will determine home court advantage.

The Fever and Liberty are currently playing. A New York win would tie them with Atlanta. And yes, Shannon Bobbitt started for the Fever.

The next games that matter are Sunday, when the Liberty and Sun face off, the Dream takes on the Fever, and Minnesota goes against Phoenix. Something tells me the series are going to be on and poppin this year.

The Lynx top the final power rankings of the year.

Nice piece in Forbes about Force 10 Hoops LLC, aka the three female owners of the Seattle Storm. They have really run that team the right way.

Here’s the Pat Summitt tribute “This is Tennessee” video that was run at last Saturday’s football game. It’s really moving. And fans greeted it with a standing ovation.
