"While I love the Liberty and the WNBA, I've decided to sit out the 2012 season to spend more time with my family. I sincerely appreciated and enjoyed the time that Coach Whiz spent with me in Italy earlier this year, and it has been great to hear from so many Liberty fans encouraging my return. I wish the team nothing but the best in its quest for a WNBA Championship."
