As we’ve been let into Monday’s practice at The Furtado Cener, the Storm is working on breaking full-court pressure as applied by the pracice squad. The most notable observation is that Sheryl Swoopes is back on the floor after missing yesterday’s practice with a strained neck.
- The Storm has moved into working on zone offense, with the guys playing a 2-3 zone defense. Doneeka Lewis, Sheryl Swoopes, Swin Cash, Shyra Ely and Yolanda Griffith are on the floor for the Storm.
- A variety of players got opportunities at multiple positions as the Storm worked on the zone offense for a good while. The team did a good job of getting shots in the pain, which is always the challenge against a zone – not merely settling for long jumpers. Ely has shown an ability to get good looks underneath, often with a reverse.
- The Storm has moved into working on an inbounds play from sideline out-of-bounds
