Seattle earns 1st win with new coach, Storm win 98-89 over Phoenix
The Seattle Strom recently let go of Jenny Boucek in this troubled season and Sunday we got to see interim coach Gary Kloppenburg take a shot at the reeling green and gold. The win stops a 4 game losing streak in a season that was beginning to look unsalvageable. With the win the Storm are still in the playoff hunt as they move into a tie with he Chicago Sky at 11-16 for the eighth and final spot with just 7 games left

Breanna Stewart and Jewel Lloyd would each bring in 20 points to lead the team. Center Crystal Langhorne would also prove particularly efficient with 8-9 from the field with 19 point
This league’s #1 team, Minnesota Lynx (21-4) come into Key Arena after having wrapped up a playoff spot. A win could propel the Strom into the 8th and final spot for the playoffs.
