Inane commentary on a game that deserves far better

Friday, May 21, 2010

I cannot stress how important it is for college teams, fans, sites to follow their players into the WNBA (and for the .com to helps others support those followers).

So it's cool to see "Streaking the Lawn.com" (Wahoo sports uncovered from the Rotunda to Homer and back) noticing that Former Hoo Monica Wright is establishing herself in WNBA
Monica Wright finished her career at the University of Virginia having scored more points in a single season and over the course of a career than any other player to have donned a Virginia women's basketball jersey. Named the ACC Player of the Year and Defensive Player of the Year, the National Defensive Player of the Year, and every All-America first team you can think of, and being drafted No. 2 overall by the Minnesota Lynx, there is no doubt that Wright is a special type of player. And just three games into the WNBA season, Monica Wright has already proven herself to be indispensable to her new team.
