Reaction to Agler's Milestone

Storm guard Sue Bird:
I think it's great. Brian, he's been with a couple of teams, but I feel like he's always had a really good ability to get the best out of his players and produce winning teams. I think that's what this milestone means.

Storm forward Swin Cash:
Obviously he's been in this game a long time, coaching in the WNBA, so I think it will be great for him and his family.

Storm forward Lauren Jackson:
That's awesome. It's a big day for him.

Storm forward Camille Little:
That's great for him. I'm glad we can help him get there. I'm glad he's still coaching. He's a great coach and he knows a lot about the game. He loves basketball, period. I'm proud of him and happy that he's doing great. He's a winning coach. Some coaches you can't say that about. If we continue to play like we're playing and he continues to lead us, I think he's going to get a lot more wins.

Storm guard Tanisha Wright:
Any time you can get 100 wins in a league, it's a great milestone. Not everyone can say they've won 100 games as a coach. It's a testament to him and what he does as a coach. I think everyone will be happy for him.
