Best bet on the Tube

Gathered at the final practice on the eve of the WNBA best-of-3 first-round playoff series, no one with the Storm could answer a simple question: Can fourth-seeded Seattle (16-18) upset No. 1 seed Minnesota? “I have no idea how good we are,” Storm coach Brian Agler said. Agler isn’t being coy heading into today’s game ( 6 p.m. on ESPN2) at Minneapolis. His team has played as a full unit only five times, going 3-2 in those matchups. Agler’s biggest asset, 6-foot-6 center Lauren Jackson, has played in only nine games with the Storm because of commitments to the Australian Olympic team and a hamstring injury. – Seattle Times
