WNBA training camp opens this Sunday; Pat Summitt receives Wooden Award


Good news for LA Sparks fans – Candace Parker has signed a multi-year contract extension.

The Seattle Storm’s training camp roster is complete, with the addition of five signees. Two are from Washington state: Ashley Corral, who just graduated from USC, and Seattle native Jacqua Williams. I thought Corral should have been drafted, and I remember the Williams days at Rainier Beach High School. Good luck to both phenomenal players.

Other signees include Lykendra Johnson to the Sky; Jasmine Lee to the Lynx; Aisha Sutherland to the Dream; and Cierra Bravard to the Silver Stars. I SO wish there were two more teams in the league to handle all these talented players.

Indiana Fever forward and 2011 MVP Tamika Catchings will be inducted into the Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame.
