Inane commentary on a game that deserves far better

Carl Adamec of the Journal-Inquirer caught up with Renee Montgomery as her Lynx visited Connecticut this weekend: Montgomery hasn’t lost her way
Life in the WNBA agrees with Renee Montgomery.

The Minnesota Lynx’s rookie point guard out of UConn loves her teammates, loves the competition, loves living in Minneapolis, and — though she misses Storrs — loves the idea of not having to go to class.

But the fourth selection in last April’s WNBA draft is dealing with something as a pro that’s totally foreign to her. The Lynx enters tonight’s game against the Connecticut Sun at the Mohegan Sun Arena with an 11-14 record having dropped four straight and seven of its last eight. In Montgomery’s four years at UConn, the Huskies were 139-11 and the last time they lost two straight Montgomery was in kindergarten.

And no one hates losing more than she does.
