3-10 and 12-9. Those are the two New York Liberty records before and after thirteen regular season games.

After a successful 2-1 road trip in which the Liberty won two games by a combined six points, New York found a way to win another close one, defeating the Washington Mystics 80-76 on Tuesday night at the Garden.

Draft prospects, some young and some old, provide optimism for franchises in need. Fringe roster players re-display skills that once made them coveted. Coaches are given the opportunity to mesh with team members.

But after being courtside in Las Vegas for five days, my appreciation for the Summer League has grown immensely.

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.
