The Silver Stars had a huge streak last year! They finished well just behind the Sparks. They are a really good team and are usually the team that should be feared. This season, however, things might change and be different. The Stars have some obstacles that they are gonna have to conquer in order to be the same great team.
Becky Hammon is back again planning to lead her team to another playoffs run. She is such a great player. She connects with everyone on her team and makes plays happen for all of them. Last year, she took a huge step up and had some great games that propelled her team to victory. Not only does she score well but she also has is her team leading assister. There’s no one that can say she doesn’t do everything for her team. Although she is a great individual player, she is a better team player. One of her teammates is down so it’s possible that she may not do as well.
Sophia Young is out this season with an ACL injury. She was a huge part of the Silver Stars success last season. Y0ung and Hammon made a great team and it is very unfortunate that she’s going to be out this season and the Stars are going to have to perform without her. She added so much to this team and without her everyone needs to step up to fill that void. Danielle Adams and Danielle Robinson will definitely be another huge part of the success of the team. Jayne Appel and Shenise Johnson will also big players to watch this season in Young’s absence.
