Taurasi Defeats Bird

Okay, not exactly. Actually, Taurasi's West All-Stars beat Bird's East All-Stars in the Connecticut Basketball Starz charity game in Hartford, Conn. last Sunday. The two WNBA stars and UConn teammates led two squads made up of several other former UConn stars as well as 18 Connecticut high-school players.

The group of UConn alumni - which also included former Storm players Ashley Battle, Barbara Turner and Rita Williams - was back home for the wedding of one of the players, Ashley Valley. That allowed them to take part in an exhibition that raised money for charities sponsored by Taurasi, Williams and Ann Strother.

"Because of the wedding, we were all back in town and it just worked great," Taurasi told the Hartford Courant. "It's awesome. It's just great to be back together, playing. Some of us haven't seen each other in three or four years."
