Evelyn Akhator is in.

Lisa Borders interview coming up. They talk about how loud it is and she refers to it as "intimate". The upper level is closed off. If that reduces the capacity by 1/3, that would mean they have 4,620 seats available.

Big Sly should have been called for that 1st time she knocked Thronton down. Sly has the right name Fouls!

I hate these friggin in-game interviews. Adds zero and detracts a lot.

I did find it interesting that they said Akhator sent money home from her college scholarship! If true, that sounds like an NCAA infraction of some sort.

That was my initial thought too but I think they get cost of attendance stipends now. Probably not more than $5k.

I HATE these interviews. They talk about how basketball is the same whether it's men or women playing, but then they interrupt WNBA games all the time to talk about crap while MISSING THE GAME. They don't do that in men's pro sports, but they do it in Olympic coverage. Focus on the game!

These Texas broadcasts are tough with their Whataburger commercials. I am ready to go buy one, but no Whataburger in my neck of the woods.

It gives Borders more chances to call it an entertainment league tho.

I laughed at her saying that people come and enjoy themselves, while everyone has been bitching this year about refs, reviews, and not fun. Laughing

I'm just happy that they didn't further torture us by keeping the camera on the interview. That is THE most infuriating thing ever and I have to admit that I yell everytime! lol!

One positive, 18 assists on 21 field goals made for the Lynx.

I wish they would've done a video montage for Nancy so folks could really understand who they are seeing and hearing.

I love how she is encouraging the crowd to support the team!

Especially that crap that the ref's called at the LA/Merc game! 10 fouls on the Merc in the 1st qt. I saw at least 4 fouls that Nneka committed but no fouls called. Sure the Merc deserved SOME of the fouls they had called against them but certainly not ALL of them.

The Wings need Paris back. Plaisance isn't a center. Can't play defense & can't rebound.

Now they are cutting away from the game to show a prerecorded interview. This is a fucking terrible telecast.

The announcer says that the Lynx team has six Olympians, including one from Great Britain. I only see five: Whalen, Augustus, Moore, Fowles, Fagbenle. Unless he is counting Reeve.

That and a couple of turnovers from Diggins isn't helping either.

Also possible his info was from preseason and included Shao Ting.

It's hard to consistenty win basketball games when you are routinely giving up 90+ pts on 48% fg shooting.

Wings last 6 gms:

LA-90p/50%
wash-101p/48%
Indy-91p/48%
Liberty-93p/50%
Indy-62p/35%
Merc-107p/48%

Tonight:91 pts on 53% fg shooting

Until dallas improves their defense,they'll continue to get the same results.

Could ya imagine the sort of career Fowles could have had if she'd had this level of coaching from the beginning? Just seeing how much she has improved with using both hands on offense, her post positioning and footwork, and even her passing.

they have no true center so teams are taking advantage to me there playing well if the had Paris i think all the games they loss since the phx game with the exception of that game were winnable if they had a presence in the post two indy in ny i felt fred didn't make adjustments

agree. Her game has improved a lot since she got to Minny. Coaching DOES make a difference.

Double sword here. Pokey also coached Fowles in her first three seasons at LSU and she was a four time All American. To throw shade at Pokey for how things went down at Chitown would also be ludicrous since Fowles didn't stink in college...and the Sky DID make it the Finals in 2014. I think having selfless teammates also has something to do with it....she would've easily been the MVP in 2011 if the Sky were in contention for the Conference title.

Fowles also suffered a lot of injuries during her time with the Sky, so her development was held back. Also, for most of her Sky career she was not surrounded by talent. It was only later in the game when EDD arrived, Sloot improved and Quigley, Breland, Faulkner emerged that the Sky were very good. Pokey did do a good job of developing younger plyers, esp. Sloot and Faulkner. In contrast - Reeve threw away Sugar.

Being on a better team does help in the winning games category. And it is true that she has been a good player, perhaps even a potential MVP candidate over the years.

However, I am looking at her own skillset independent of teammates. She has objectively gained more skills since she arrived in Minnesota. The most dramatic being her usage of her left hand. That hand was non-existent in Chicago, now it is a huge part of her game. And there are many other areas of marked improvement in the execution of her game.

Was there a quote from Reeve or Fowles crediting head coach Reeve for any improvement in Fowles' individual skills?
