I really wanted this to workout for the Liberty.
Yes! Of course this is contingent on the continued support from the NBA.
USA! USA! USA!
PEDAL TO THE MEDAL: USA beat Spain by 13 10/5 in Turkey to take its second straight world championship. (Aussies took the bronze, congratulations Leilani Mitchell and crew.) Total record for Worlds and exhibitions this season was 10-1. Spain was no pushover, with WNBA players like Sancho Lyttle and Anna Cr-OO-OO-OO-Z. (That’s how they say her name when she plays in Madison Square Garden for the New York Liberty.) Well done, ladies! Hmn, this FIBA championship was a nice palate cleanser, and now on to my favorite time of year, college WBB! Who will I be rooting for this year? (lol)
And this is why I am determined to go to the All-Star game next year no matter what city it is in. Especially since there will not be one in 2016 and all of my faves are getting up there in age I want to see them all one last time.
