Tuesday Morning, Afternoon & Evening . . .

This morning both Katie Carrera of the Washington Post and Mike Fratto of the Times have stories about the Mystics' dispersal draft selection of Houston's Matee Ajavon here and here. As in her blog post yesterday, Katie emphasizes that the choice of Ajavon adds a fifth "shooting guard" to the Mystics' roster. What Katie doesn't ponder is whether all five of those guards will actually be in Mystics blue when the 2009 season rolls around. Mike, on the other hand, sees Ajavon as adding "depth to [the Mystics'] backcourt."

This afternoon, part two of this big offseason week for the WNBA takes place at 3PM when the league holds the 2009 Draft Lottery. Yesterday, Adam Hirshfield of the league office "live blogged" the dispersal draft, and expects to do the same for the lottery today. So if you can't wait a moment longer to find out how the ping pong balls fall for the Mystics, keep an eye out on WNBA.com at 3PM for Adam's blog.

And this evening, the Terps will be making the relatively short trip from College Park to Baltimore to take on the Greyhounds of Loyola of Maryland at 7PM . . . and no doubt they will be trying to bounce back from their disappointing showing at Pitt on Sunday. There should be plenty of loyal Terps fans in the stands tonight to help cheer them on to victory (we hope). But for other fans, including the BasketCases, who won't be able to leave work early enough to get through the traffic nightmare from Washington to North Baltimore during rush hour, you'll be able to listen live here.

A full day!

Loyola has a link for you to watch the game. I think it's free.


The basketball office has sent out emails to "The Rebounders" making these links available. Jen has done a great job of hooking us up with game info so, if you're a "Rebounder" and aren't getting these emails, contact the office with your email address.

My bad. It's not free. I just tryed to sign into the webcast and found out Loyola is charging for this game. Not too surprised since, they are gouging us for the tickets to the game. Anything to make a buck and some of us will pay these inflatted prices. I will be at the game since I don't have to work late, anymore (retired) so, it's up to you if you want to pay to watch the game.
