She'll offer observations, critiques, occasional off-beat tales and answers to select e-mail inquires. Evans also has written a book on the Storm and women's hoops, called "Game On!"

Storm All-Star Lauren Jackson was named player of the week for the second time this season. Jackson averaged 23.3 points and 10.3 rebounds while shooting 54 percent from the field to help the Storm win two of three games.
Jackson, who leads the league in scoring (22.7) wasn't feeling so hot about her previous honor, saying others played better. Our bet is she'll feel good about this one, especially because it includes one of her five 30-plus games this season. (FYI, the record for most 30-point or more games in a season is eight.)
The Australian has earned nine POW honors in her seven-year career.
