Women's Hoops Blog
Jayda Evans covers college and pro women's basketball. While its her first year on the Washington beat, she has covered the Storm since its inception. 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!"

Was sent a link to the expected All-Star reserves, although it's not supposed to be announced until later today. Why the delay, I don't know. Oh, wait. It's public now.
Anyway, no other Storm players were named and Phoenix F Penny Taylor is on the list, so no tattoo for teammate Diana Taurasi. Glad Houston F Tina Thompson is on the list as well as Asjha Jones of the Connecticut Sun. But I can't believe New York has no one. That's just wrong and a total flub by the Eastern Conference coaches. Especially since Indiana F Anna DeForge is a starter -- although that's the fans' fault.
WNBA president will name injury replacements for Storm guard Sue Bird (knee) and Detroit forward Cheryl Ford (knee) soon. Let's hope a Liberty is in there.
