UPDATE: Vandersloot finishes with five points and two assists in 22 minutes of an 81-70 loss.

Vandersloot hits a 3 late in first half but her Chicago Sky trail Seattle Storm 41-33. Vandersloot is 1-5 with one board, two assists, two fouls in 13 minutes.

 

Getting from the interstate to Key Arena, with the Mercer exit closed, was nothing compared to getting on-line at Key Arena, but we did. Didn't need to look up with Courtney Vandersloot came out for warmups.

There was a story today about her rookie season in the WNBA (the by-line was left off, but yes, I took a break from hockey and rodeo to talk to her), as well as a little catch-up with local players Briann January and Angie Bjorklund, who are injured.

There could be a near-record crowd here because of Vandersloot. There was a Gonzaga alumni function before the game and another after. The GU women's team is here, plaeyrs in Sky T's, and the City of Kent, where Vandersloot went to high school, is doing something.

Back later.
