Ipso Sacto

It’s one great forward, two steps back for lady flappers

The rather unfortunate slogan of the WNBA’s Sacramento Monarchs is “Expect Great Basketball.”

Or not.

You can certainly anticipate it from the Monarchs’ full-tilt forward Nicole Powell, who was born in Sierra Vista and went on to play three All-America years at Stanford. But Powell, Sacto’s perennial scoring leader, is about it for this down-and-out franchise, the bottom-feeder of the Western Conference.

Powell comes home to Arizona to take on the Merc at US Airways.
