Lauren Jackson’s first game for Ros Casares Valencia didn’t end the way either she or the team hoped. With Jackson playing 10 minutes off the bench in her first game action since the Storm’s final playoff game, Ros Casares fell victim to a home upset by ZVVZ USK Praha. It’s the first loss this season for Ros Casares, which fell a game off the pace set by Galatasaray in Group A. Valencia shot just 35.5 percent from the field. The team’s lone productive offensive players were Sancho Lyttle (19 points) and Ann Wauters (18). Take them out of the equation and the rest of the team shot worse than 20 percent. Eva Viteckova scored a game-high 20 points for Praha.
In better news, Swin Cash is back blogging for Slamonline.com. In her first installment of the offseason, Cash explains why she believes in what the WNBA stands for as opposed to the start-up Lingerie Basketball League.
You’re trying to tell me that’s why the WNBA isn’t appealing? In the words of Mr. Ochocino, Child Please! The WNBA has beautiful women who are not only amazing athletes, savvy business women and pillars of their communities; they also have resumes that make them more than just eye candy!
Cash wraps up by breaking the news that she’s rejoining DongGuan New Century Club in Dongguan, China for a third season and going for a WCBA championship after falling just short last year. Good luck, Swin!
