The Storm lost 74-67 in an exhibition game against Los Angeles on Sunday. It was Seattle’s only sanctioned WNBA warm-up due to scheduling conflicts to organize the standard two. With the regular-season opener Friday and the core having only been together since Saturday, you have to wonder if it’ll be enough. The Storm…

Utah star Michelle Plouffe making an impression in Seattle

Utah’s grinding defensive style is paying off for Michelle Plouffe at Storm training camp. Drafted in the second-round by Seattle in April, Plouffe filled an early training-camp necessity in Storm coach Brian Agler needing bodies to fill out practices sans his main starters and All-Star Sue Bird due to overseas playing commitments. But with the…

Storm 2013 Exit Interviews: Forward Camille Little wanted to do more

Series Note: The Storm was swept in the opening-round of the WNBA playoffs by Minnesota on Sept. 22. Game 2 was played at the Tacoma Dome due to a scheduling conflict at the team’s KeyArena court by one of its sponsors, Microsoft. Minnesota went on to win the Western Conference championship as Seattle players dispersed to offseason destinations the following days after holding exit interviews with coaches and the media. This series will feature conversations from the 11-player roster.

The WNBA offseason won’t feel as long given news the league should generate on the business side. The league’s collective-bargaining agreement expired Sept. 30 and a new agreement will need to be in place before free-agency can open as tentatively slated in February. The 2014 WNBA schedule likely will be moved up to accommodate for the 2014 FIBA World Championships in Turkey from Sept. 27-Oct. 5.

Storm-wise, the team could remain the same in 2014. Here’s a conversation with F Camille Little, who took on the co-captain role as franchise leaders PG Sue Bird (knee) and C Lauren Jackson (hamstring) rehabilitated offseason surgeries. Little, 28, had a slight dip in numbers while increasing her minutes to 30.2. She teamed with F Tina Thompson inside to average 10.9 points and 4.7 rebounds. But Little shot 28.7 percent from three-point range after an improved 33.3 percent in 2012.

Seattle Times: How do you wrap up the season?

Little: It’s weird, bittersweet. Obviously I really had a great time with this group of women. It was a special team and I’m sure Brian (Agler) and the coaches would say that. It was a special group and I’m really happy, just glad that we held to our standards and fought the entire season. We all know a lot of people didn’t count on us making it to the postseason, let alone give Minnesota the run that we did. So, I’m just happy we played well and played hard. You know, 10 consecutive years making the playoffs — doing it without Sue and Lauren this year, finishing at .500. It was a tough season all the way around, but we did a great job of using what we had to our advantage. We were a tough team to play against.
