With Obama on hand, Coleman leads Mystics to rout

August 02, 2010|By Sports Digest

In front of a crowd that included President Barack Obama, former Terp Marissa Coleman had 14 points and 10 rebounds for her first career double double as the Washington Mystics cruised to an 87-62 victory over the Tulsa Shock on Sunday. Crystal Langhorne, a teammate of Coleman's at Maryland, added 11 points, and Chasity Melvin and Lindsey Harding each had 10 for Washington (15-10). The Shock (4-22) lost its seventh straight and 19th of its past 20. Obama sat courtside with a group that included his 9-year-old daughter Sasha — wearing a Mystics jersey — and Ted Leonsis, who owns the Mystics, the NBA's Washington Wizards and the NHL's Washington Capitals.
