5.jpg My thanks go to whoever decided to put spotlights on the visiting team. They make my shots look much better.

7.jpg Well, sometimes the spotlight is a little too high for some players.

19.jpg Start the game off with a really good screen to show the defense that you mean business.

22.jpg This seemed like a foul to me but then Roy was officiating and that always makes it a different game.

24.jpg Oh, yeah, this was when we got our first three or four offensive rebounds because the Liberty were busy double teaming instead of boxing out.

31.jpg The no-look reverse layup amazed me a few years ago, and now it seems like LJ does it in every game.

33.jpg I'm guessing Yo thought she was being fouled...
Click to see 34.jpg
34.jpg ...because she threw up the ugliest shot I've ever seen.

Click to see 46.jpg
46.jpg ...LJ getting the ball stripped...
Click to see 47.jpg
47.jpg ...oh, and Yo got clocked in the face but that happens all the time.

67.jpg Essence and Tanisha get about the same height...
Click to see 68.jpg

71.jpg I'm gonna keep saying this: I hate the sweep! This should be an offensive foul, right?

Click to see 73.jpg
73.jpg Ha, try to score with that ball now...
Click to see 74.jpg
74.jpg ...and Essence does by adjusting it as she goes up for the layup!

77.jpg I think this was an offensive foul. Yo's right foot was planted before the foul...
Click to see 78.jpg
78.jpg ...unfortunately her bad knee gets tangled up...
Click to see 79.jpg
79.jpg ...but fortunately she breaks her fall with her, uh, injured hand.
Click to see 80.jpg
80.jpg This is my ball, new girl!

Click to see 82.jpg
82.jpg This shot was not a good idea...
Click to see 83.jpg
83.jpg ...she knocks Swoopes to the floor and Yo, once again, gets clocked in the face.
Click to see 84.jpg
84.jpg What's the noise? It's Kristen O'Neill going into the game of course.

86.jpg Remember when the Liberty knocked our inbound pass out of bounds about thirty times?

91.jpg Oh dear, what happened here again? I think the first jumpball was knocked out of bounds and Roy (and Shameka) felt that meant they needed to rejump it.

Click to see 93.jpg
93.jpg Great block by Swoopes!
Click to see 94.jpg
94.jpg Sue gets a little too aggressive on defense...
Click to see 95.jpg
95.jpg ...and that lets Shameka get past her for the shot.
