In the shadow of a 4-14 first half of a another disappointing season, the Washington Mystics took a moment to remember better days. The organization will commemorate its 15th WNBA season with the unveiling of the all-time Mystics team. The celebration will take place at halftime of Sunday's game against the Chicago Sky, Washington's first at home after the Olympic break.
Crystal Langhorne knows what it's like to win a gold medal. In fact, the Washington Mystics forward has two.
With six seasons in the WNBA, three ACC championships at Maryland and an Olympic gold medal, Vicky Bullett has had plenty of highlights over the course of her basketball career.
After winning the 2006 national championship, Maryland women's basketball coach Brenda Frese wrote a book titled "Overtime is Our Time." Yesterday, the Terrapins had to draw upon their old ways to secure a win.
"As always, we like to be remembered," said Bullett, who was an assistant coach and manager of basketball operations for the Mystics in 2009. "I'm just so excited to have the Mystics fans remember the past. Being a part of the Mystics organization was important in my life, and it always will be."
"I know what to expect, but it still doesn't take away the butterflies," she said. "I had to write a speech — if not, I'd probably cry the whole time."
