Limping Liberty head into Olympic Break on 3-game Slide
If you’re a follower of the Liberty, the upcoming Olympic break will be a bittersweet one for you. You’ll be bored without games to watch (or maybe watching them isn’t always an enjoyable experience –that's up to you7), but happy that the team can return to full strength.
For a month now, the Liberty have been hit hard with the injury bug. It started with DeMaya Walker, a great veteran presence, getting banged up, continued with Plenette Pierson, and ended when Kia Vaughn was concussed a couple of weeks back. All but Pierson have returned to the floor, but as Vaughn admitted after last Friday’s game, she’s a little rusty. Walker and Pierson will benefit from this time off, and should bring some hope back to the team.
