Mystics Trivia Contest: What is 48-45? If you guessed that 48-45 is the score of a typical game involving the Rutgers women's basketball team, well, you might be right. But since this is a Mystics blog, we had something else in mind. 48-45 is actually the final score of the ONLY game that the Mystics have ever won against the Connecticut Sun at the Reservation (aka Mohegan Sun Arena). The date was August 1, 2003. The only Mystics players from that dog of a fateful game who will still be on the court tonight when DC plays in Connecticut (7:30pm, ESPN2) are Coco Miller, Nakia Sanford, and Asjha Jones. Oops, Asjha now plays for the Sun! Are the Mystics in trouble, or what?

Seriously, the Sun are having another phenomenal year. They shot 51% last night (and clinched a playoff spot) as they cruised to victory over the New York Liberty, 89-71, even without All-Star Nykesha Sales. They are 9-2 at home and are on a 4 game winning streak. In order to beat the Sun in Connecticut tonight, the Mystics will not only need to play basketball for four quarters (something they have not been able to do of late), they will also need to bring their A-plus game for the entire 40 minutes.

"Do you play rebkell fantasy challenge?"

actually no . . . since we live in a fantasy world, we find we don't need any additional challenges!

but the BasketCases hope your pick turns out to be correct.
