Reunited . . .

The Mystics began last season with two players from the same college program, and ended with two from the same college program. But just not the same college program. When things started off last year, Chasity Melvin and Gillian Goring, both from NC State, were on the roster. But following the early-season trade of Chas to the Sky for Mo Currie, Duke replaced the Wolfpack as the only college with more than one player on the Mystics' roster.

The Blue Devils may not hold that distinction much longer, however, as the Mystics selected UCLA senior Lindsey Pluimer in the second round of this year's WNBA draft. If "Plum," as she is known, makes the final roster, she'll join Diva Nikki Blue as the second Bruin on the Mystics. It was not surprising to learn from Katie Carrera's article in this morning's Washington Post that Blue and Pluimer, who played together for two years in college, are overjoyed at the prospect of being teammates once again. Reunited . . . feeling good.
