School is now in session. Well, no it isn’t, but at least for Cappie Pondexter it is. On a day where Madison Square Garden hosted about 12,000 out of school summer campers for Camp Day, Pondexter was still teaching an important lesson; do not leave her wide open on the game-winning shot.

So much for home-cooking. After winning three straight games at home, the Liberty believed they had turned a corner, but lost to the San Antonio Stars on the road. Heading back home, the Libs (7-13) thought they had a good shot at winning their fourth game out of five Friday night, but lost to the Los Angeles Sparks (8-11) 68-54.

The Liberty came into this five game home stand with a 3-10 record, losers of 5 straight and were searching for answers. Laimbeer said “I told the team six, seven games ago that I only know of one way out of this- to come to work every day and play as hard as you can.” After Tuesday night’s 90-74 win against the Tulsa Shock, the Libs are 6-11.  While it is still not the prettiest record, there are definitely signs that the Liberty are poised for a run in the second half of the season.

Maddie the mascot’s birthday was not the only reason to celebrate this Sunday for the New York Liberty (5-10). The team, who had just lost a close game on Friday against Chicago 73-69, bounced back and beat the Connecticut Sun 67-65 in another tight one.

The Liberty are in the midst of a critical five-game homestand, in which they hope to turn around what has been a poor start to the season. Coach Bill Laimbeer and the entire Liberty team had obvious frustration after Friday night’s 73-69 loss to the Chicago Sky. Laimbeer said at the conclusion of the press conference that this defeat was “a tough one to take.” New York was outscored 50-37 in the first half, and despite a second half run, were unable to complete the comeback. This loss put the Liberty at 4-11, last place in the Eastern Conference.
