Thanks to the Women’s Hoops Blog for digging up an update on one of my all-time favorite Storm players, guard Michelle Greco. Greco’s lone WNBA season saw her come off the bench for the championship 2004 team. While Greco’s time in the WNBA was brief, she has enjoyed a lengthy and successful career playing in Italy and recently signed a new two-year deal with her Levoni Taranto squad, the local Glendale News Press reported.
Greco was motivated by an upset postseason loss to a Phard Napoli squad featuring former Storm teammate Adia Barnes.
“It left a bitter taste in my mouth,” Greco said. “The Italians are great fans, but they love you when you win and they hate you when you lose. We were booed right out of that gym when we lost at home [in front of] a sold-out crowd.”
Greco, who has annually hosted a camp for kids in her hometown of La Crescenta, just north of L.A., hopes to eventually get into coaching and apparently is looking into opening a women’s sports-themed restaurant near her alma mater, UCLA.
