Tulsa Shock Roster Down To 11 After Veteran Cuts - Amber Holt And Shanna Zolman Released

The Tulsa Shock have released a pair of five-year league veterans in Amber Holt and Shanna Zolman, announced today.

Last season Holt was a staple in the starting lineup, starting in 24 of the 26 games in which she played. She averaged 6.7 points, 3.1 rebounds and 2.4 assists in Tulsa's trying season. Holt's came to Tulsa in a 2010 Draft Day trade with the Connecticut Sun.

Shanna Zolman (formerly Crossley) was a face on many a Shock broadcast last year as she took her position behind the mic after sustaining a season-ending knee injury. Zolman's contribution to the offense ranked her third on the team in points per game (9.7) in 2010. She sunk an easy 42.2 percent of her 3-point attempts as she put her nickname "Layup" on display.

With the cuts, the Tulsa Shock roster is down to 11. Three rookies - Glory Johnson, Riquna Williams and Lynetta Kizer - join the fold in the youthful organization. Tulsa will have to drop someone off the roster after the 2012 Olympic break to make way for Liz Cambage, should she be ready to return to the states after the Australian Olympic campaign.
