  • Shock 75, Liberty 73: Not to be outdone by the Mets and the Yankees, the Liberty saw its season end one day after baseball's regular season. A furious rally couldn't make up for a disastrous first half, when the Liberty was outscored, 41-24. Janel McCarville led the way with 21 points, and Shameka Christon had 12. But Detroit shot 51 percent from the floor. Tough to win when opponents do that.

    Those trying to watch this game on ESPN2 had to watch on ESPN Classic until the White Sox-Tigers makeup game got finished. What a blow for the WNBA to have its game on ESPN Classic instead of ESPN2. The Liberty was denied a chance to face Becky Hammon's San Antonio Silver Stars in the WNBA finals.
