Frontcourt player to join Phoenix squad

Mercury Add Stevenson to Camp Roster

Posted: March 21, 2007

The Phoenix Mercury added frontline player Mandisa Stevenson to the teamís training camp roster, the club announced today.

The 6-3, 166 pound Stevenson made the Mercury roster in 2006 after being invited to training camp. The former Auburn star saw action in two games before she was released on June 15. Stevenson is a three-year WNBA veteran who spent the 2004 season in San Antonio and the 2005 campaign in Seattle.

WNBA training camps open Sunday, April 22, 2007. The Mercury will train at US Airways Center in downtown Phoenix.

Winners of a franchise-best seven straight to finish 2006, the Phoenix Mercury look to pick up where they left off led by All-Stars Diana Taurasi and Cappie Pondexter in the record-shattering offense of head coach Paul Westhead. Under the direction of new general manager Ann Meyers Drysdale, the Mercury own the No. 1 overall pick in the April 4 WNBA Draft. Phoenix opens its 11th WNBA season on Saturday, May 19 at 7:00 p.m. at US Airways Center against the San Antonio Silver Stars.
