IN to the SKY
Posted on 5/19 by Will Steinberg
Itís game day shoot around at the Verizon Center in Washington DC. The players are relaxed but focused after arriving the night before from Chicago.
I checked in with Pokey to talk about her keys to tonightís game against the Mystics and here is what she had to say on what the Sky need to do.
#1) Take care of the basketball.
The fewer turnovers we have, the more opportunities weíll have to execute our offense.
#2) Establish our transition game
The more the team can score in transition, the more team is able to relax and find their rhythm.
#3) Be tough on the boards
The team canít expect Sylvia to get every rebound. The whole team needs to be involved for the Sky to be successful controlling the boards.
Game time is 6:00 p.m.CT tonight. The Mystics are expected to play the Sky tough just like they did in the preseason. Donít be surprised to see Dominique Canty, Michelle Snow and Lindsay Wisdom-Hylton come out with a little something to prove after playing with Chicago last season.
