In their longest stretch at home this season, Mystics play was a show of the mostly good, the sort of bad and the sporadically ugly. Last night the team (9-7) defeated the Sacramento Monarchs, 87-73. Crystal Langhorne continued to shine in her sophomore season, leading the team with 19 points.  In this win and their Thursday win over Chicago (75-64) the Mystics demonstrated why they are currently 3rd in the Eastern Conference and have a serious chance at the playoffs. Tomorrow the team will play on the home court of No. 1 Indiana (to who they lost Tuesday 70-82) and then on to that of the New York Liberty.

She cries daily at the thought of her imminent departure from this beloved city, as she will begin a Fulbright teaching grant in the Campania region, Italy come October. She’ll be blogging that experience too. Get at her: or follow her on twitter.
