On the Road With Shona Thorburn

Guard Shona Thorburn was born in England and raised in Canada, but was drafted out of the University of Utah by the Minnesota Lynx with the seventh overall pick in the 2006 draft. She saw action in 22 games for the Lynx last year, and though she was waived late in the 2007 preseason, Thorburn signed with the Seattle Storm on July 5.

Thorburn spoke recently with WNBA.com about her travels in basketball and about which place in the world she'd most like to see.
