The WNBA giveth, and the WNBA taketh away.
Case had a great article yesterday about all of the former UofL players in the WNBA being active on Friday, including on opposite sides of the court from each other. Today? Well, the WNBA was in action yesterday, but no former Cards. A quick rundown of the action: The Atlanta Dream came up short against the Dallas Wings, 85-75; The Chicago Sky and Connecticut Sun put on an offensive clinic, with the Sky coming out on top 100-93; and finally probably the best game of the day, the Sue Bird-less Seattle Storm were nonetheless victorious over the Phoenix Mercury.
Cards will be in action today, though. Angel McCoughtry and the Las Vegas Aces will take the court at 5pm vs Jaz Jones, Kylee Shook, and the New York Liberty. For the nightcap, Myisha Hines-Allen and The Washington Mystics look to avoid falling below .500 against the Indiana Fever at 7pm on ESPN2. The other game today doesn't have any Cards in it, but includes a great match-up of some excellent veteran WNBA players with Sylvia Fowles and the Minnesota Lynx taking on Candace Parker and The Los Angeles Sparks. That on tips at 3pm on ESPN.
