5.jpg OK this is the deal where they have the players run down the aisles so half my pictures are really close and the rest are from a mile away.

15.jpg The Monarchs start off with a really hard shot...
Click to see 16.jpg
16.jpg ...that doesn't work.

18.jpg Same thing again. Is shooting over LJ the best idea?

21.jpg Am I repeating myself? Not only is LJ able to screw up this shot...
Click to see 22.jpg
22.jpg ...she has the vision to somehow follow the ball as it goes past her.

23.jpg Nicole gets the rebound and tries desperate to get a shot off as the defense collapses on her.

29.jpg Brunson tries to fake LJ out...
Click to see 30.jpg
30.jpg ...but it still leads to a big LJ block...

36.jpg You'd think DeMya could shoot over LJ but she misses the shot...

49.jpg At the first game of the season, Doppler tends to have a few too many at the FSN HD lounge...
Click to see 50.jpg
50.jpg ...and this is the result.
Click to see 51.jpg
51.jpg No foul called here but DeMya missed yet another shot...
Click to see 52.jpg
52.jpg ...DeMya gets her rebound and misses again thanks to LJ deviating the shot...
Click to see 53.jpg
53.jpg ...oddly Camile would have been in the perfect position for the rebound if she hadn't been getting up!

54.jpg Is Harper running this thing in for a touchdown?

56.jpg Katie tries to draw a charge but nothing doing.
Click to see 57.jpg
57.jpg Ouch! So pointy!
Click to see 58.jpg
58.jpg Harper tries the "sweep" that bugs me because it seems like an offensive foul. Maybe players should just flop over when this happens.

72.jpg Camile gets the ball swatted away...
Click to see 73.jpg
73.jpg ...but to save the ball, she knocks it right back to Camile!

75.jpg The shot clock was reset. Michael Price somehow thought that knock was a change in possession. I think he was mistaken.

80.jpg Look like Janell will have another layup...
Click to see 81.jpg
81.jpg ...but there was this little foul.
Click to see 82.jpg
82.jpg LJ looks like she's happy to be back.
Click to see 83.jpg
83.jpg DeMya knocks the ball away...
Click to see 84.jpg
84.jpg ...Sue is 100% convinced that was a foul but I didn't see much contact at all.
Click to see 85.jpg
85.jpg It looks like the Monarchs have given up in the last minute.
