    Alison Lacey Update

    While putting this morning's links section together, I got curious as to how Alison Lacey is doing during her rookie season in the WNBA.

    So I looked it up and discovered that "Aus" isn't getting much of a shot to do anything. I'm sure this is somewhat normal in the WNBA with rookies, but it still sucks for her.

    Lacey is only averaging 4.7 minutes per game.

    Watched 90% of the game last night. She didn't get her warm-ups off in a 20 point win. Waste of time. The only interesting thing going on was Lauren Jackson canning a bunch of 3s.

    Re: Alison Lacey Update

    The problems are clear:
    1. She's behind the best PG in WNBA (or one of the best): Sue Bird
    2. WNBA only has probably 2 weeks for training, get to know players, pre-season games, etc. As Brian Agler already explained, this makes things hard for him not to trust the experienced players.

    I saw a bit of the game and Sue Bird is awesome.

    Thanks, I was wondering about that since she got minutes in games that were closer than last nights.

    There's the answer I was looking for last night. I think everyone but her played, so being sick or hurt was the only thing I could think of.

    Re: Alison Lacey Update

    I find it very sad that "Aus" does not get to play, but I have been watching the WNBA for years and it is normal for rookies not to play much until halfway in the season unless you are a superstar like Tina Charles. Also, Brian Angler has said that he doesn't know what position to put Aus in yet. He doesn't quite know where she plays best. I think once she gets some experience under her belt she will be amazing. I think once she makes her first points in a game she will be unstoppable. Once you make your first basket in a season, a lot of weight gets lifted of your shoulders. Cyclone fans now Seattle fans! GO AUS! GO SEATTLE!!!!!!

    Re: Alison Lacey Update

    It was the first time I spent any amount of time watching a professional women's basketball game. Hopefully she'll get to play more sometime soon.

    I love me some Aus, but Sue Bird is 100x the player Aus is.

    Oops! I forgot about that. Though I think she still needs to drain one of those awesome 3pts she does. One of those ones that are way beyond the 3pt line!

    Lacey must still be sick since she didn't play today in a blowout win where the Storm was up by 41 points at one point in the game.

    Yea, she was still sick. The coach said she was filling a lot better today, but letting her play time was questionable. It was sad because that would of been the best time for her to pick up experience, but oh well. She will have other days to gain experience! Though it is quite cool that Seattle is ranked first in the WNBA and they are 8-1 now..


    Once a cyclones, always a cyclone.

    Yup, bummer, she could have logged a good 10 minutes in that game based on how many rookie Bishop got off the bench at forward.
