JAZ GOES FOR 24, ANGEL FOR 20 IN WNBA ACTION
Some huge performances last night in the WNBA for UofL WBB greats !!
LA SPARKS 93 - NEW YORK LIBERTY 78
Jazmine Jones led all scorers with 24 points in the New York Liberty's loss to the LA Sparks in the late game from the "wubble". Jones played 26 minutes in the loss and went 8 for 16 from the floor. Coming in off the bench as the Liberty's back up point guard, she also had five steals and hit all seven of her free throw attempts.
A slow start for the Liberty proved costly -- falling behind 28-14 after the first quarter of play.
Kylee Shook also saw action for New York, after sitting out the Liberty's previous game with a foot injury. Also coming off the bench, Shook had five points and three rebounds in 13 minutes.
LAS VEGAS ACES 98 - INDIANA FEVER 79
Angel McCoughtry led the Aces in scoring with 20 points in 22 minutes in the Aces win. She was one of six Aces in double figures, who used a dominating 17-7 fourth quarter to push a nine-point lead to a 19-point win.
McCoughtry was a sizzling 9-10 from the floor for Las Vegas and hit her only three-point attempt. Usually an excellent performer at the line, Angel went just 1-3, but the Aces got their fifth win in a row and are now 6-2 on the season.
MINNESOTA 68 - WASHINGTON 48
Myisha Hines Allen went for 12 points and grabbed six rebounds to lead the Mystics in scoring, but the slumping squad had a disastrous fourth quarter where they could only come up with four points. Washington took their fifth loss in a row after starting the season 3-0.
Hines-Allen logged 33 minutes as the starter at center and went 5-10 from the floor.
CONFERENCES WEIGHING IN ON FALL SPORTS
How crazy was yesterday in news about the Power 5 conferences in the NCAA?
First we hear that the Big 10 and the PAC 12 have decided not to play fall sports. Then, as last night drew on, reports were coming out that the BIG 12 was leaning toward playing and and an official announcement would be made today (Wednesday)..
Still on the fence with no decision are the ACC and the SEC. The SEC is playing "wait-and-see" and probably won't decide until the end of the month. As far as the ACC goes...
We'll just have to wait and see. I get tired of hearing that phrase, and I bet you do, too. Unfortunately, that's the crazy, topsy-turvy world of the Power 5 and the NCAA these days.
WALZ IN COLORADO
No, rumor mongers, he's not out there interviewing for a job. Don't even get that stuff started.
He and the family taking a bit of vacation time before his youngest daughters start back to school on Monday.
He did make an internet appearance on the ACCN's Packer and Durham show yesterday morning, though, and here's the interview.
Good stuff, I recommend the listen.
Have a wonderful Wednesday!
