I’m extremely late today so we’re going to get right to it. One beginning note is Storm coach Brian Agler said he’s not changing his starting lineup tonight, having success with a three-guard lineup to win against Sacramento in the opening two games of the season.
“But we obviously have that in our minds that we can go that way,” he said.
Sacramento did make a change as G Kara Lawson continues to rehab back from a knee injury, putting Scholanda Robinson in with the opening five. Robinson and Ticha Penicheiro also play well in disrupting PG Sue Bird on defense.
The crowd is sparse considering the Storm’s first four games. Perhaps the 6 p.m. start and traffic. Doppler is late to the arena, after all. Or it could be that folks have decided to chill and watch ESPN2’s coverage.
Either way, here’s your starting lineups:
F Nicole Powell
F Rebekkah Brunson
C DeMya Walker
G Ticha Penicheiro
G Scholanda Robinson
F Swin Cash
F Lauren Jackson
C Camille Little
G Sue Bird
G Tanisha Wright
Tonight’s officials are Clarke Stevens, Cameron Inouye, and Eric Brewton.
