Sacramento Shootaround

I watched the end of the Monarchs shootaround this morning before interviewing Jenny Boucek for the site. Sacramento is still without vets Ticha Penicheiro, DeMya Walker and Rebekkah Brunson, all working their way back from overseas, but this group seems to have some good chemistry.

Boucek closed shootaround like Anne Donovan does here in Seattle, with a halfcourt shootout with $50 on the line. Nobody made it the first time through, but three did in a span of about five shots in the second round. That's $16.67 apiece (did anyone bring change?) for Nicole Powell, Kim Smith and rookie Erin Batth.

Yolanda Griffith did not win despite bringing out her veteran tricks, shimmying and shaking in an effort to get the shooter's roll with her attempt.
