Ex-Terps standout adjusts to WNBA
“It’s just basketball stuff. As professionals you wouldn’t think you wouldn’t have to focus on that, but that’s the things that have been causing us some problems and causing us to lose two games so far,” Rollins said. “We’ve been breaking down things — from layups to denying the ball to getting the correct angle to make the post entry to outlet passes — all the little things you did from Day 1 learning how to play basketball.”
The Mystics have lacked focus at the start of games. They’re aware of their shortcomings in the first half and are tweaking their pregame routines in an effort to get off to a faster start.
“We have to come out with a sense of urgency,” guard Alana Beard said. “In the past two games, we’ve let the other team come out and take us out of the game. We have to be an aggressor from the get go.”
When: 4 p.m.
Where: Verizon Center
Outlook: The Mystics need to play better in the first half than they did in losses to Indiana and New York. Houston’s only game this season was May 17, so it will be coming off an eight-day layoff. Both teams have a legitimate star (Alana Beard of Washington and Tina Thompson of Houston), and the result might come down to who has a better game.
