Pugilist Powell Sent Packing. In a surprising move today (particularly since they have to pay her salary for the rest of the season), the Chicago Sky waived guard Elaine Powell, formerly of the Detroit Shock. Powell is perhaps best known to Mystics fans for cold-cocking Coco Miller during a Shock game in DC last season, sending her crashing to the floor. . . No foul was called. This followed an infamous incident during a game in Europe when Powell punched an opponent in the face, breaking a bone. Now, some in basketball consider that a flagrant foul. The BasketCases call it an assault.
