“We are excited about the fifteen players who opened up camp with us on Sunday. It’s so nice to actually start camp with your best players on the court, many of whom had a chance to rest and recuperate after the long ‘off-season’ overseas,” said General Manager Angela Taylor. “The intensity and competitiveness out there on the court is off the charts as each of them battle for a spot on the final roster. Yesterday was the first day in our journey to becoming a championship contender.”
