Tina having a great game in the first half - 12 points and 6 boards midway thru the 2nd quarter...
The potential ROY isn't looking too bad either with 19 and 6 on 7-13 shooting, including 3-6 from 3.
true. that's really amazing. this is her 2nd season and she set the WNBA record for double-doubles as a rookie? she is something special. any post player considering other colleges including UCONN needs to look closely at how Geno developed Tina and prepared her for the pros, US National Teams, etc etc. i realize she had a world of potential coming to UCONN, but she could have developed like Kia Vaughn, or develop the way she did.Tina's double-double today was her 21st this season, one shy of the WNBA record she set last year. Of course, the more important accomplishments this year are the 20-12 record and making the playoffs.
i think she deserves it but i think it will come down to a vote between Diana, Tina and Angel. the thing about Angel is that Atlanta made their big push when Sancho Lyttle came back. Diana is the leading scorer in the league followed very closely by Angel. Tina is only 5th behind those 2, Crystal Langhorne, and Cappie. in spite of Atlanta's playoff push, as much as Angel is great, it came because of Sancho. that's why i think the MVP should be between Diana or Tina.Tina needs 2 double-doubles in 2 games to break her own league record.
Not sure where she stands relative to the rebound record--which she set last year as well--but she should be close.
She is also tallying assists, steal, and blocks most games.I think she is the leading contender for MVP.
and a big game for Ashja Jones too - 16 and 10 so far. Ashja is +32 and Tina is +28. that's just amazing to go along with their great days. a pair of double doubles...
