Players to scrimmage and train with 2009 WNBA Champions

Mercury Announces 19 Players Selected to Practice Squad

Posted: March 30, 2010

The Phoenix Mercury today announced the players selected for its official practice squad. Tryouts were held March 27 at US Airways Center to determine the 19-person squad who will scrimmage and train the two-time WNBA Champion Phoenix Mercury at select practices from April through August.

“The skill and talent level of those that attended was impressive,” said Mercury Head Coach Corey Gaines. “We had a difficult time narrowing the list of more than 130 people that tried out to the 19 players we feel will be the best squad to challenge and strengthen our team.”

Those selected will receive a pair of Nike basketball shoes, official practice squad T-shirts and tickets to a Suns and Mercury game.
