It's been a season of on-the-job training for Laurel Richie, who took over as president of the WNBA last year. Coming from a nonsports background, Richie conceded she had a lot to learn.
"When I was with the Girl Scouts, I used to say that we were always looking for really terrific role models for young girls," Richie said. "I think the women of the WNBA are perfect for that. They are such wonderful athletes, they understand hard work, they understand teamwork. There's great similarity in the sense of civic responsibility of the Girl Scouts and the women of the WNBA."
"I sense a different feeling this year than last year," Richie said. "The women came back this year hungry and ready to compete. I am proud of the product we put on the floor."
