Sure, the University of Connecticut could easily be dubbed “PG U,” but could Washington slowly become the breading ground for solid WNBA point guards?
Who knows what lies ahead for Covington native Courtney Vandersloot, a rising sophomore PG at Gonzaga. But Leilani Mitchell, who was born in Richland, is making waves for New York and in an article today, Indiana coach Lin Dunn said Spokane’s Briann January (pictured right by the WNBA) would start the season at PG for the Fever.
January, who starred at Arizona State, passed Australian veteran Tully Bevilaqua for the position. It was known January was drafted for the future, but one of the reasons why it was believed Bevilaqua didn’t take the Storm up on its offer was to start in Indy. Bevilaqua also grew a loyalty to the Fever and liked their championship chances.
In a conversation on Twitter, Dunn hoped January would be like Denver’s Chauncey Billups. The former Storm coach likes January’s versatility and athleticism.
