WNBA McCoughtry, Dream add to Mystics' misery, 83-73 Baltimore's Angel McCoughtry (St. Frances) punished the Mystics for the second game in a row, scoring a game-high 27 points to power the host Atlanta Dream to an 83-73 win. McCoughtry, who also played a game-high 37 minutes, added six rebounds, four assists and three steals. Guard Bria Hartley (16 points) led the Mystics, who shot 47.1 percent from 3-point range but lost that advantage through deficits in turnovers, rebounding and overall field-goal percentage.

When Angel McCoughtry steps on the floor of Basketball Arena in London later this month, she won't play in front of the largest crowd of her life. In her country's opening game against Croatia on July 28, the Baltimore native won't face the best competition she's ever seen. But to McCoughtry, the two weeks of basketball at this summer's Olympics will be the most important of her career thus far. "It's the best honor in the world and the best honor I've received in playing basketball," McCoughtry said.

Angel McCoughtry led the WNBA in scoring this season for the second year in a row. She was second in steals per game and a member of the All-WNBA Second Team, too. She has earned other accolades as well, including All-WNBA First Team honors in 2011 and Rookie of the Year in 2009. But something is missing for the Baltimore native: a WNBA championship. McCoughtry and her Atlanta Dream teammates are looking to change that starting Sunday with the first game of the WNBA Finals against the Minnesota Lynx.

Angel McCoughtry found a way to become No. 1 - in the WNBA draft. Two days after her Louisville team was beaten by Connecticut in the national title game in St. Louis, the All-America forward and former St. Frances standout was chosen by the Atlanta Dream with the No. 1 overall pick in Secaucus, N.J. "I have no complaints," she said Thursday. "This is the best thing in the world." The next two players selected recently completed standout careers at Maryland. Forward Marissa Coleman was chosen by the Washington Mystics with the second pick, and guard Kristi Toliver went to the Chicago Sky with the third selection.

St. Frances' Angel McCoughtry, last winter's All-Metro girls basketball Player of the Year, has signed a national letter of intent to play for St. John's next season. The 6-foot-1 forward, a Street & Smith's preseason honorable mention All-American this season, led the Panthers on a wire-to-wire run as the area's No. 1 team last season as St. Frances won its second Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference title in three years. Exceptionally agile, quick and versatile, McCoughtry has three triple doubles in her career and averaged 14.4 points, 10.5 rebounds and 3.2 steals a game last season.

In the fall of 2004, Angel McCoughtry's parents weaved through Blue Ridge mountain roads as they took their daughter to her new life at the Patterson School in Lenoir, N.C. Their goal was for Angel - who begins her WNBA career Saturday when the Atlanta Dream plays host to the Indiana Fever - to immerse herself in schoolwork at the secluded prep school and become academically eligible to play college basketball the next year. But the 17-year-old found it hard not to focus on what she had left behind.

The last time St. Frances trailed a conference opponent by 16 points, the Panthers never recovered. Last night against No. 11 McDonogh, however, the top-ranked Panthers pulled together and pulled out a 54-44 victory. The host Panthers used their press, picked up their rebounding and began attacking the Eagles' zone late in the second quarter. They carried that over into the second half, taking their first lead of the game on Angel McCoughtry's three-pointer with 24 seconds left in the third quarter.

Going into last night's game in St. Frances Academy's new gym, senior Kia Coady wasn't sure her Panthers would have home-court advantage just yet. "We didn't know how things were going to go, because this is our first time playing on this floor. We've never even practiced here," Coady said. The No. 3 Panthers adapted to their new home quickly, using a pressure defense and accentuating mismatches inside to defeat No. 10 St. Mary's, 50-38, in an Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference girls basketball game.

Louisville's Angel McCoughtry is more than ready for her close-up. The 6-foot-1 junior forward has somehow managed to slip under the women's basketball radar despite leading the nation in scoring and steals, as well as getting one of the season's first triple doubles. But as McCoughtry, The Sun's 2003 girls Player of the Year at St. Frances, brings her Cardinals team to her hometown for a game at Coppin State (4-7) today, she's starting to notice the attention on her, and she likes it. "Now, people are saying this year, `Yeah, we've got to watch that girl from Louisville,' " McCoughtry said last week.

A handful of journalists were on hand to watch the U.S. women's basketball team win its Olympic opener against Croatia. It was an obvious contrast to the crammed news conference the previous day for the U.S. men's team, where reporters scurried toward Kobe Bryant and LeBron James before packing into a dense semi-circle seven or eight people deep. "This is more physical than our games," Bryant quipped as media members pushed and shoved one another. "I've seen at least two flagrant fouls.
