She's Baaacck!

Earlier today, the Mystics announced that former Washington Head Coach Marianne Stanley will be rejoining the team as an Assistant to Head Coach Julie Plank.

Longtime Mystics fans need no reminder that in 2002, Coach Stanley guided the team to its most successful season ever -- a trip to the Eastern Conference Finals. But before that, the BasketCases (and many hundreds of others) got to enjoy what was for us, without a doubt, one of the most exciting -- and fun -- days we've ever had as Mystics fans. We're referring to that memorable day in Charlotte when the Mystics upset the Sting to advance to the Conference Finals.

In the intervening years, Coach Stanley has served as an Assistant Coach at Rutgers and, most recently, for the LA Sparks.

The BasketCases are very pleased that Marianne is returning to Washington. Welcome back, Coach Stanley!

Stanley is a great coach. I'm excited about this.

If she's coaching post players, what happened to VIckie Bullett?

I just checked the roster. Bullett is still there, but Luby Lichoncsak is gone.
