Mystics' Playoff Roster Set. On Wednesday, each of the playoff teams was required to submit its 11-person playoff roster. No one may be carried on the inactive list. Once a team names those 11 players, that's it; there's no going back, even if a player is injured. With Crystal Robinson reportedly well enough to play this Friday (and raring to go) the only question for Mystics' fans was who Coach Richie would drop from post-season play. The BasketCases were not surprised to learn that it was rookie Tamara James. Although Tamara was a much-heralded scorer in college, it was clear watching her play in the pros that she has not yet developed into a well-rounded player, offensively and defensively. Many young players use the off-season to play overseas and work on their games. We expect Tamara to do just that, and we hope to see her back in training camp next year as a more complete player. The BasketCases were overyjoyed to learn --- as, no doubt our loyal blog readers in Latvia must be --- that Zane Teilane has earned a spot on the playoff roster! (Hey, not bad for somebody who was supposed to be a "project" and not supposed to suit up all year!)
