Women's Hoops

The latest news and analysis on college and pro women's basketball.

Target practice

The Storm busted out onto the court pegging unsuspecting fans with leather miniature basketballs, a twist to their normal routine. Press row got hit in the head, so be kind if the stories sound a little loopy in Sunday’s paper.
The crowd is still respectable despite the Mariners honoring Edgar Martinez, the sixth consecutive day of gorgeous weather in Seattle, and the decisive Eastern Conference Finals all occurring simultaneously. But the audience remains about 3,000 short of opening night’s sold crowd of 9,686.
Storm crowds typically struggle with attendance to start the season, picking up after graduation season in June. But larger crowds were expected during the offseason to show new owner Clay Bennett support in keeping the teams in Seattle. Of course even he is off his own bandwagon, campaigning in Kansas City and Oklahoma City, so maybe it shouldn’t be surprising if there’s a little apathy.
