1.jpg More of me trying to take interesting shots of the visiting team during the Storm introductions. I'm manually focusing (in near darkness) and trying to get the players on the very edge of useable shadow details.

9.jpg The game started simple enough: Lindsay Whalen simply running to the basket, over and over and over.

15.jpg Now we think we have her trapped...

17.jpg Finally after six or seven Lindsay Whalen Blitzkriegs, Betty is able to stop her without a foul...

28.jpg Erin Phillips doesn't seem to be afraid of injuring herself...
Click to see 29.jpg
29.jpg ...she slammed right into Lawson's block here...
Click to see 30.jpg
30.jpg ...then takes a spill...
Click to see 31.jpg
31.jpg ...then traps the ball between her feet. This is legal possession of the ball. At the U of O vs. UP game a few months ago, I saw a jumpball called when a U of O player trapped the ball with her feet!

40.jpg What has happened to the Sue Bird Charm? That smile could turn two pointers into three pointers, flops into fouls and maybe even make the shot clock go backwards. Now refs look at her like she's asking them for spare change.

49.jpg Sue tries to screw up Katie's drive...
Click to see 50.jpg
50.jpg ...she got a hand on the ball (without drawing a foul)...
Click to see 51.jpg
51.jpg ...but Katie still manages to rip it away...
Click to see 52.jpg
52.jpg ...and make a layup.
Click to see 53.jpg
53.jpg Isn't this over the back on Janell?
Click to see 54.jpg
54.jpg Oh well, who am I to judge?
Click to see 55.jpg
55.jpg Tough shot...
Click to see 56.jpg

71.jpg A strange floating no-look pass...
Click to see 72.jpg

73.jpg We have a little comeback going and the bench looks slightly worried.

93.jpg Here's a situation where I think LJ's lack of mobility is pretty clear...
Click to see 94.jpg
94.jpg ...a healthy LJ would put a spin move right around old Taj...
Click to see 95.jpg
95.jpg ...but even stepping on this foot seems to be awfully painful...
Click to see 96.jpg
96.jpg ...so she sort of stumbles around Taj.
