Live From Practice 5/6


Aaron Last/Storm Photos

As we've been let into practice, the Storm is going 5-on-5 against the practice squad. On the floor are Doneeka Lewis, Sheryl Swoopes, Swin Cash, Shyra Ely and Ashley Robinson. Yolanda Griffith is on the sidelines and the Storm's training staff was working with her.

Coach Agler is a bit frustrated about the team's execution on offense early in this session following some early turnovers.

- After some subs, we've started a new scrimmage with Kimberly Beck and Swoopes in the backcourt and Katie Gearlds, Robinson and Kelly Santos up front.

- Agler has turned up the urgency today, and this group is responding. Nice play by Beck to find Santos rolling to the hoop after a pick for a runner off glass.

- Players have paired off to shoot free throws, which should wrap us up for the day.

Has O'Neill gotten any floor time the last few days?

Kevin Pelton said...

Yeah, everybody rotated in at some point except Natalie Doma, who missed today's practice to study for finals at Idaho State.

On O'Neill: To stick around in camp this long, players have to have shown the coaching staff an ability to help the team this season. However, there's still a lot of wing players for only a few spots, so the coaches have some tough decisions ahead of them.

On Aaron: Not yet, but look for something later today.

What has been your impression of Allie Quigley to date? Will she be squeezed out with the plethora of guards the Storm has?
