    The Phoenix Mercury are playing the Japanese Women's National Team without the Mercury's stars like Diana Taurasi still is playing in Europe. Penny Taylor (knee) is out for the season. Candice Dupree, who recently finished her season in Russia, and DeWanna Bonner (Spain) aren't expected to arrive in Phoenix until late Tuesday.

    I like the signing of the Tulsa Shock. They brought in a veteran point guard in Temeka Johnson. It is a good signing as Johnson in her journey career is known as a vocal leader and that would preside with the Shock's young stars like Liz Cambage.

    WNBA scouts agree that Yuka Mamiya and Kumiko Oba can play in the WNBA. Maybe next season.

    Former James Madison standout Dawn Evans, the NCAA 3rd high scorer in the 2010-11 season and CAA Player of the Year, who went undrafted by WNBA last year, has been added to this year's Connecticut Sun roster.

    Affected by a serious illness diagnosed in 2009, she played part of the 2011-12 season for an European club in Austria and was then signed in March by Conn Sun to a training camp contract.

    LA Sparks topped Seattle Storm in the WNBA opener 72-66, behind 25 pts by Kristi Toliver.
    Storm currently play without Lauren Jackson, engaged in Australia with the Opals.

    It was a costly victory for the defending WNBA champions, the Minnesota Lynx as Seimone Augustus will be playing with a rib injury sustained in the third quarter. Still, Augustus paved the way with 19 points to lead the Lynx past the Phoenix Mercury 105-83.

    A bad start for Cappie Pondexter and the New York Liberty as they are now 0-3.

    Fine overall performance by Candace Parker in yesterday's win of LA Sparks over Seattle Storm with 21pts, 10 reb, 4ast and 6blocks.

    I like the LA Sparks this year. Parker is playing rejuvenated perhaps by the rookie Ogwumike. I am looking forward to their match-up with the Minnesota Lynx. A potential western conference finals preview.

    Los Angeles Sparks 84
    Minnesota Lynx 92

    The defending champions, Lynx overcame the twenty points plus output of the Sparks' Toliver, Parker and Ogwumike as they outlast the Sparks. Seimone Augustus lead the Lynx with 25 points.

    Augustus' best WNBA season ever, probably.
