"I think we can compete with anybody," the Silver Stars' Becky Hammon said. "We're glad that we did what we needed to do to get into the playoffs. The playoffs are a whole new season, nothing in the past matters. The only thing that matters is Thursday."
"I do think it's time that some of those barriers do come down," Hammon said. "I think it's silly on a certain level. If you know and understand basketball, you know and understand basketball, period."
