McCoughtry was pummeled to the floor on every layup it seemed, but always jumping back up, ready to go again. The officiating crew, of course, was oblivious to extracurricular activities. She wound up with 35 points despite the battering.
“You have to come prepared for a battle,” McCoughtry said afterward. Angel wasn’t kidding, nor was she smiling.
