McCoughtry Has Big Night

[stextbox id=”custom”]Just a matter of playing time.

Angel McCoughtry, the former University of Louisville All-American, came off the bench to score 34 points and lead her Atlanta team to 93-87 win over San Antonio in Women’s National Basketball Association action Thursday.

McCoughtry connected on 10 of 12 shots from the field and sank 10 of 17 from the free throw line. She was also credited with seven rebounds, four assists, three steals, and a blocked shot.

The win was the third straight for Atlanta and seventh in the last eight to improve to 14-11, moving them into second place five games behind Indiana in the Eastern Conference.

    I am stunned at how little coverage of the Dream can be found on the Atlanta paper’s web site. Unless they have print coverage that far exceeds what’s on the web I fear for the Dream.

    Still, they’re drawing pretty well in Hot ‘Lanta. The WNBA, as a whole, is pretty dependent on the stipend the NBA provides. It’s good to see Angel finally getting some playing time and a few starts. 21 against L.A. last night in a loss. Marynell Meadows is probably the worst coach in the league, though. Without Chamique Holdsclaw’s leadership and experience…they’d be at the bottom of the Eastern Conference. Meadows was less than stellar in the college ranks, so this qualifies her to coach the pros?
