1.jpg Uh oh, Wendy's out with a bum wheel (as my dad used to say) but she's doing a great job of entertaining the scorer's desk.

47.jpg Shannon driving through our double team. It looked like she was planning on passing to Sophia Young...

49.jpg I don't think you can hold the ball between your feet. You can however hold it between your knees and that's consdiered possession! I saw this at the U of O/U of P game this year.

83.jpg Our final shot (ignoring Izzy throwing the ball over the backboard). Betty comes off the bench (?) to make the shot. Rebounders are in place...
Click to see 84.jpg
84.jpg ...witnesses say Dalma didn't pull a "DeMya" but was actually pushed. It made no difference however...
Click to see 85.jpg
85.jpg ...ooops.
Click to see 86.jpg
86.jpg When the Silver Stars went yelling into the locker room, they sounded like a team that had just won a game they knew they shouldn't have won.
