Where’s the rebound?

Looked at the stat sheet and thought there was a misprint. Yes, I watched the game, but Storm center Janell Burse didn’t have a single rebound in nearly 30 minutes? Unbelievable.
Burse and Jackson are the only players averaging double-doubles in the league. Burse said there was a lot of pushing and shoving under the hoop, which is why she lost her cool and was given a technical in the first half (which will cost $150), but she’s got to be used to that by now. Plus she’s strong enough to play through it.
I wanted to pin that on the loss — the Storm was outrebounded 35-27 overall — but Seattle actually outrebounded Sacramento 7-5 in the final quarter when a Sue Bird three-pointer cut the lead to two points. Still, it’s a shocker that Burse was pushed around like that.
