Another look

Had a hard time jumping on the New York bandwagon because they’re first three wins were against teams with a combined 2-14 record at the same point. But I just caught the Liberty-Indiana game and, yeah, NYC deserves to puff its chest.
Washington native Cathrine Kraayeveld keyed the fast start in the fourth quarter to break the game open (her parents attended the game at Madison Square Garden). And Storm reject Ashley Battle scored a team-high-tying 15 off the bench for New York, which is also a season high for her, adding in seven rebound to help dissect the Fever.
The win keeps the Liberty undefeated (5-0) and is the first loss of the season for the Fever, a squad many picked to win the WNBA title this season. Detroit, New York’s next opponent on Friday, is the only other remaining unbeaten.
The Liberty is young, but they execute their offense well and Kraayeveld is blossoming. What do you think? Is she All-Star worthy in the Eastern Conference?
