WASHINGTON -- As the curtain comes down on her first WNBA season, let's just say that certain parts of the Chamique Holdsclaw story have played to mixed reviews.On the one hand, Holdsclaw has helped lead the Washington Mystics to 12 wins -- nine more than last season -- heading into today's season finale here against the Minnesota Lynx.On the other, the Mystics have lost more games (19) in three months than Holdsclaw lost in four years at Tennessee (16).Sometimes, the highs and lows have come in bursts.

WASHINGTON - The Washington Mystics plan to distribute bobblehead dolls in the likeness of their best player, Chamique Holdsclaw, before tonight's game against the Seattle Storm. It's a good thing then that Holdsclaw will actually be in the lineup and will help the Mystics make a run at the team's first WNBA Eastern Conference title. Holdsclaw, a 6-foot-2 forward in her fourth year, missed nine games and the Mystics (15-8), who have led the East wire-to-wire, won five of them. But Washington has lost two straight for only the second time all year, and the time felt right for Holdsclaw to come back.

WASHINGTON - It's early on a Sunday afternoon, about an hour before tip-off, and the music is already blaring in the Washington Mystics' locker room at MCI Center, just one sign things aren't the way they used to be. The artist of someone's choosing is Eminem and the lyric that relentlessly repeats itself is "Sometimes, it feels like the world's on my shoulder." That line is ironic for star forward Chamique Holdsclaw, because she has been having her best season in four years as a pro precisely by taking the world off her shoulders.

WASHINGTON - The surfers say that you've caught "big air" when you're propelled high into the sky over a wave. In that vein, Vicky Bullett caught some big air on a couple of big shots yesterday to propel the Washington Mystics to a surprisingly hard-fought 63-59 win over the Detroit Shock. Bullett, who had a game-high 22 points, hit a pair of high-arcing, long-range three-pointers to bail the Mystics (15-6) out of a potentially devastating loss to the worst team in the WNBA, before a sellout crowd of 19,766 to boot.

Last night was the same old story for Chamique Holdsclaw.Once again, she was dominant, and once again it was her performance that was instrumental in Tennessee's 93-75 win over Louisiana Tech for the national title."

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- Because Chamique Holdsclaw and Michael Jordan wear the same number, 23, have a similar fluidity to their games and are the vital cogs to championship teams, there is a temptation to compare the Tennessee forward with the Chicago Bulls superstar, and the comparison is probably unfair to both.But there are moments, like last night, when Holdsclaw looks every bit as dominant in her world as Jordan is in his.With the top-ranked and unbeaten Lady Vols looking as vulnerable as they have in quite a while against 15th-ranked Western Kentucky, they climbed aboard Holdsclaw's back and she carried them to an 82-62 victory and a berth in Saturday Mideast Regional semifinal against Rutgers at Vanderbilt University.

WASHINGTON - As bouncing leather balls and squeaking sneakers resonate throughout the practice gym at MCI Center, Pat Summitt leans on a railing overlooking the court. She's not doling out orders today. There's no new defense to install. No one is the recipient of her patented "stare." No, it's a more pacific venture than the one she has waged for 28 years as women's basketball coach at the University of Tennessee. This is a new ballgame for Pat Summitt. "I'm just going to sit back and watch," she said from her perch.
