WNBA Fan Vote: The Right Stuff

By Mel Greenberg

The Guru will temporarily turn his attention away from the action in here in Washington at the Verizon Center where the host Mystics are in a key Eastern Conference WNBA clash with the Indiana Fever.

A little while ago the WNBA announced the results of the tiop 10 players named by fans to next week's All-Star game at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut.

Full details are at the WNBA site by now -- It's the middle of Tuesday evening.

As previously stated, any players named who are in the USA team mix already will move to that roster. The rest are guaranteed spots on the WNBA squad.

So here's the deal, the Right Stuff was a movie about the start of the NASA program and how the astronauts had to have the rught stuff to qualify.

But now, we have a new interpretation -- The results show that in San Antonio had the right stuff in getting four Silver Stars named in the voting. In fact, despite the East dominance, Indiana's Tamika Catchings is the only East player among the top 10.

Seattle's Sue Bird, the former UConn star, was the top vote getter and will be in the USA pool coached by UConn's Geno Auriemma.,
Seattle Storm coach Brian Agler will head the WNBA group.

Catchings would join Bird in the USA group as would Phoenix's Diana Taurasi, another ex-Uconn standout, and possibly former Huskies star Swin Cash of Seattle. Los Angeles' Candace Parker is also in that group, but will need a replacement snce she is out for the season with a separated shoulder.

The San Antonio quad are Becky Hammon, Michelle Snow, Jayne Appel -- the rookie from Stanford -- and Sophia Young who will be joined on the WNBA contingent by Seattle sensation Lauren Jackson, an Australian.

League coaches will fill the restt of the WNBA roster. Once upon a time, the media named the starters. But mob rule has enabled San Antonio to gain additional notoriety after hosting a top-flight NCAA Women's Final Four in April.
