A BasketCases shout out to Jon Siegel of the Washington Times for two big articles about the Mystics in a span of merely three days! Though the Times is normally not one of our favorite newspapers, its Sports Section actually manages to provide some good coverage of local women's basketball, albeit on a somewhat haphazard and unpredictable schedule. In any event, we're happy to see Jon paying attention and keeping us up-to-date on Mystics news.
This season's camp is heavy on young players, many of them first-time campers (including WNBA Rookie Orientation "MVP" Krystal Vaughn). As has already been reported, Siegel notes that "the Washington Mystics will open training camp today without any roster players from last season." However, he provides a helpful timetable of when those roster players are expected to trickle in to camp (or not, in the case of DMJ). Alana Beard is due back midweek. (With all her trash-talking about this Thursday's "game" against the EITM radio crew, let's hope she makes it back in time to back up all that talk with a little action!)
