She seems to be fairly solid at putting some points on the board and grabbing a few rebounds. When she gets around 20 minutes of playing time she has averaged 7.5 points per game and 4.5 rebounds this season.
The Storm waived seldom used, and mostly ineffective forward, Florina Pascalau to make room on the roster for Little.
Kevin Pelton raves about Little's ability to defend both forward spots in his blog.
She has not rebounded exceedingly well, but is averaging around 7 rebounds for every 40 minutes played.
Little does fit Agler's model of having flexible players who can play the wing and the post at both ends of the floor. Little is shooting 40% from long range this season having made more three pointers at this point than she did all of last season. The Storm could use a little scoring punch from the bench, and Little may add some of that.
On a side note. Sue Bird is scoring more points per game this season than she has since 2005. How is she managing that while shooting her absolute worst career percentages (36.8% and 27.1% from three)? She has made more free throws so far this season than she attempted all of last season. It is great to see Sue's aggressive play return. She is on pace to take more free throws this season than she has in any season since her rookie year where she was 102-112 (91%). She has averaged 63 free throws per season since 2003 with only 26 taken last season. She is shooting 32-39 (82.1%) in the first 14 games this year. Her all around shooting numbers are way down.
If she can raise her percentages closer to her career numbers and continue her aggressive play, she can exceed her career high average of 14.4 points per game set as a rookie 2001.
Minnesota has come back down to earth of late and is merely the .500 team we expected. Phoenix is struggling even more than I expected, but LA and San Antonio are rolling.
Candace Parker became the second woman to dunk in a WNBA game against Indiana last night.
New York looked spectacular last night as they brutalized the reigning champion Phoenix Mercury last night in High Defintion on NBA TV. They were raining threes and nothing was falling for anyone in purple unless their jersey had Taurasi printed on it. Maybe the whole team should change their names. Loree Moore was great in her first game back in the starting lineup with 12 points, 5 rebounds, 4 assists, a steal and only 3 turnovers in almost 20 minutes of playing time. I was very glad that I got the chance to record this game.
