It Happened Elsewhere!

Storm 87, Mercury 83. Awful. Awful. Awful. The Storm trailed by 20 in the first half, but the Mercury couldn't finish them off. Now, Phoenix is 0-3. Do coaches make that much of a difference in the WNBA? Or maybe (according to the article) it is the fact that most of the Mercury players missed training camp while playing overseas? All I know is that the probability of Phoenix repeating as WNBA champs might have taken a steep turn downwards.

Sky 87, Monarchs 77. Two reasons why this game ended differently for the Sky: a) Sylvia Fowles didn't foul out after 15 minutes, and b) the Sky shot 57 percent from the floor. Meanwhile, the Monarchs can't hang on to the orange-and-white ball - this is their second straight 20+ turnover game.

Liberty 79, Mystics 60. The Liberty pretty much had this game from the opening tip, with 11 offensive rebounds in the first half. McWilliams-Franklin was one of only two Mystics that scored over 10 points. Maybe she needs to introduce that vegan diet to the whole team.
