Like the Storm, the Indiana Fever is celebrating its 10th Anniversary in 2009. The two teams came into the league together, along with Miami and Portland, and have had close ties ever since, as both Anne Donovan and Lin Dunn have coached in both Indiana and Seattle. On Saturday, the Fever recognized its All-Decade Team and Tully Bevilaqua earned the unique accolade of being named to both All-Decade Teams. Bevilaqua holds a special place in the hearts of fans of both teams. She will be honored this Saturday, when she and Dunn return to Seattle with an Indiana squad that has the WNBA’s best record at 19-5 for the Storm’s Women of Inspiration Night.
Incidentally, the other Storm player doubly awarded as an All-Decade Teamer is Swin Cash, who made the unofficial squad picked by the Detroit Shock during Detroit’s 10th Anniversary season in 2007.
