Mystics' Record Survives! For awhile there, the BasketCases were afraid that the Sky (or maybe even the Liberty) were going to erase the most famous record that the Mystics hold in the WNBA record book -- the worst season ever: 3-27!! However, Chicago notched their 4th win last night, beating the Lynx, 79-65, leaving the Mystics' record intact. The Mystics were helped by their former teammate, Stacey Dales, who led all scorers with 20 points (and perhaps also helped by the recent addition to Minnesota's coaching staff of Jim Lewis, inaugural head coach of the Mystics for that record-breaking 3-27 season). Having suffered through 3-27, the BasketCases are hoping that our season of futility will reign supreme in the annals of the WNBA forever.

The Mystics take on Tamika Catchings and the rest of the Fever at Conseco tonight at 7pm EDT. Speaking of records, Indy will be starting the same five players for the 20th game in a row, a franchise record. (The Mystics have been fortunate enough to have the same coach for the 20th game in a row.) There's no TV coverage, but you can listen on WWRC 1260 AM, or via WNBA.com.
