Pepperdine coach on Jen Lacy: "She's doing well."

After the Pepperdine's 70-51 loss to the Washington Huskies last night, Jayda Evans of the Seattle Times got an update on Jen Lacy from Waves coach Julie Rousseau.

Pepperdine coach Julie Rousseau, a former Los Angeles Sparks coach, has been in contact with Tulsa Shock F Jennifer Lacy..."We are in full support of Jen," Rousseau said after her team lost to UW on Tuesday. "I talked to Jen and she's doing well. That's all I'm concerned about is that she is healthy and safe. The Pepperdine family is supporting her and loving her through this tough time."

If she had been a man with equivalent basketball talent, Holdsclaw would long ago have become our city's greatest tragic sports figure."
