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!"

The Storm opted not to re-sign second-year guard Shona Thorburn to a second seven-day contract, instead picking up Doneeka Hodges-Lewis, who is in her fourth season. Hodges-Lewis, whose twin plays for Houston, was cut by Los Angeles in training camp, appearing in one game.
The apparent seven-day contract doesn't appear to cure any of Seattle's issues, however. All-Star Sue Bird is expected to be out rehabbing her left knee and Hodges-Lewis is a natural shooting guard, giving the Storm three on the roster.
