It's like little Ralphie from "A Christmas Story." Everyone sets out for an A grade. But with just three teams boasting winning records at the All-Star break, most teams scored far below their expectations.
Four-time WNBA scoring champion Diana Taurasi and Penny Taylor have signed multiyear contract extensions with the Phoenix Mercury, the team announced Monday.
Diana Taurasi scored 26 points, Candice Dupree had 23 and the defending champion Phoenix Mercury beat the Tulsa Shock 123-91 Thursday night.
Penny Taylor hit two free throws with 1.5 seconds left to lift the defending WNBA champion Phoenix Mercury to a 78-77 victory over the Los Angeles Sparks in the league's season opener Saturday.
WNBA star Cappie Pondexter is headed to the New York Liberty as part of a major three-team trade.
