Mystics Set The Sun, 83-64 In Their Last Preseason Game

3

It certainly hasn't been the best of weekends at Monumental Sports and Entertainment, the ownership group of the DC WNBA, NBA, and NHL teams. First Caps Nation is still reeling from Saturday's Round 2, Game 7 Loss to the New York Rangers at the Garden. Now, Caps Nation learned about head coach Dale Hunter's departure earlier this afternoon. That quickly changed with the basketball teams. First Wizards guard John Wall was named to the Team USA Select team. But wait, this is a Mystics post! The Mystics certainly didn't disappoint in their preseason home game earlier tonight. This game was decided in the 2nd and 3rd quarters as Monique Currie scored 19 for the ladies in Monumental Red, 16 at the half. Natasha Lacy added 12 points and six dimes. Lang of course was great as usual with 18 points, 13 rebounds, and 5 assists. Mystics outrebounded the Sun 40-26... Wouldn't put too much stock into it when the Sun didn't have Olympian and All Star Tina Charles in the game. Then again, the Mystics didn't have Matee Ajavon either and Olympian forward Ashja Jones played, and she dropped 17 points (but no rebounds, that's right none). But still, the game I saw today was the style of ball that Trudi Lacey wants to showcase this season. We shall see if this style can remain this consistent as the season rolls on. UPDATE: One thing to note that's not in the box score. Mistie Bass was ejected from the game with a Flagrant 2 after she hit Michelle Snow. I didn't get a clear view at the play, but someone next to me told me that Bass smacked Snow with the back of her hand at the end of a play somewhere. I believe it was in a rebound situation or something like that, so there wasn't a fight or anything, but there was a chippy moment.
