Training Camp Report: April 28, 2014Tweet
Training camp is underway for the Fever's 15th WNBA season. 12 players were in camp for the first day on Sunday, while Ziomara Morrison joined the squad on Monday. Four players — Jasmine Hassell, Lynetta Kizer, Erlana Larkins, and Shavonte Zellous — will join the team later due to commitments overseas.
With six rookies and eight new faces currently in camp, the first few days have been a crash course in learning a new system and getting adjusted to a new coaching staff. In the video above, Fever head coach Lin Dunn shares her initial impressions from training camp, including her take on the Fever's top draft pick Natasha Howard and free-agent acquisition Marissa Coleman.
Speaking of Coleman, FeverBasketball.com caught up with the six-year veteran to talk about her decision to sign with the Fever and her envisioned role on the team. RELATED: Coleman Hungers for Big Year »
In addition to getting to know some of the new faces at Fever camp, we also visited with a familiar face: Karima Christmas. After a very successful season in Israel, Christmas is back in Indiana and excited for another year with the Fever. Check out her interview below:
