Inane commentary on a game that deserves far better

Monday, May 31, 2004

During Friday's Fever-Sting game, Indiana's Tamika Catchings was struck in the forehead by an elbow/forearm from Charlotte's Alison Feaster. Catch was on the floor for several minutes (after she was called for the foul). Apparently, Catch was defending Feaster on the play, trying to get the ball.

Tamika's hustle and effort are second to none. ESPN The Magazine commented that her style of play has often caused her injuries, diving for loose balls and sacrificing her body. However, some early reports from Indiana indicate that Feaster used an unnecessary level of force on the play.

As for Catchings, she suffered a mild concussion.
