Tanisha Wright On The Verge of a WNBA Title
Tanisha Wright ’06 scored 17 points and added a game-high 5 steals Tuesday night to help the Seattle Storm take a 2-0 lead over Atlanta in the WNBA Finals. Wright, who was recently named to the WNBA all-defensive first team for the second straight season, is one game away from following Kelly Mazzante ’04 as a WNBA champion. Mazzante won a ring last season as a member of the Phoenix Mercury.
ESPN.com posted a video interview with Wright earlier this week, and it’s worth a quick look. Game 3 of the best-of-five series is Thursday night in Atlanta.
