The Storm look to get back on track after last Saturday’s loss to Tulsa. Of the Storm’s four losses in 2013, two of them have come at the hands of the Shock, who have just three victories themselves.
Tonight’s game will be the first time that Seattle has faced Liberty guard Katie Smith since she left the Storm as a free agent in the offseason. Smith, the all-time leading scorer in the history of women’s professional basketball, is averaging 5.4 points in 24.9 minutes per game.
The Liberty are once again led by guard Cappie Pondexter, who is averaging 17.0 points per game in 2013.
After a slow start to the season, the Storm’s Tina Thompson is now averaging 14.4 points per game to lead the team.
