Sacramento Monarchs Fold!

In news that came as a shocking surprise today to just about everyone, including the team's GM/Coach, John Whisenant, the WNBA's Sacramento Monarchs -- former WNBA Champions -- announced that they have folded, effective this morning. While there is some possibility that the team could be picked up by an owner in the Bay Area, it's just that -- a possibility. The one thing that seems certain is that former Terp Laura Harper, DC-area natives Kara Lawson and Becky Brunson, and the rest of their teammates won't be playing ball next summer in California's capital.

This is very sad news. Another team in the league is kaput. A team the BCs loved. More players might be out of jobs. Very, very sad. Let's hope the Bay Area move comes through!

Bring Harper to DC ASAP. We need a player that can complement Langhorne and she may well be the perfect fit. :)

Washington might have the pick up Harp if there is a dispersal draft

For all that I would love seeing Harp here, Kara Lawson, Ticha, and Becky Brunson are amazing players too.

As a fan of the league above all else, I do not want to lose another team.
