Courtney played 30:33. She had 14 points, 3 rebounds, 3 assists, 2 steals, 2 fouls, 1 TO, 1 block. Very nice game.

Elena Delledone (#2 draft pick) had a great game. This team is going to be fun to watch, but I think they only have one more on TV. I'll be watching on WNBA live access, which cost $14.99 for the season.

After Vandersloot opened the season with a 14-point, three-assist effort against the Mercury last Monday, Sky coach Pokey Chatman said she believes her point guard is poised for her best season yet.

"She's gained 15 pounds and a lot of strength," Chatman said. "I think this is going to be a big year for her."

And thus, perhaps a big season for the Sky, who have been waiting for one. Delle Donne has already established herself as a pro-ready talent on the wing, Epiphanny Prince is one of the league's best scorers, Sylvia Fowles one of its most productive centers and Swin Cash is a veteran with championship experience.

Vandersloot's maturation at the point just adds to the possibilities.

"For me, it's just a matter of another year under my belt, a little more confidence and I've added the weight," Vandersloot said. "As a team, we've added some pieces. We are all really meshing so far."

Fowles, Sky top Liberty, 82-64, earn playoff berth

By BRIAN SANDALOW
Posted Aug 23 2013 10:53PM
ROSEMONT, Ill. (AP) Sylvia Fowles scored 14 points to lead Chicago to an 82-64 win over the New York Liberty on Friday night, clinching the Sky's first playoff berth in the team's eight-year history.
The Sky (19-8) have won four straight and six of seven, locking up their first winning record with a victory Tuesday at Washington. Chicago leads the Eastern Conference by 3 1/2 games over Atlanta, which lost 74-64 to Washington.
Chicago led 38-33 at halftime and outscored New York 29-12 in the third quarter to take control of the game before resting its starters the entire fourth quarter. The Sky play Saturday at Atlanta.
Elena Delle Donne and Swin Cash scored 11 apiece and Courtney Vandersloot added 10 for the Sky, who swept the five-game season series from the Liberty. Fowles, the league's leading rebounder, had seven boards in 21 minutes.


Courtney played 26:06. She had 10 points, 7 assists, 2 steals, 1 foul, 1 turnover.

Sky's Vandersloot taking game to another level
Point guard's production has keyed recent 7-1 stretch
August 29, 2013|By Philip Hersh, Chicago Tribune reporter

Imagine a point guard being told to be greedy.

That was the message Sky coach Pokey Chatman delivered to her third-year point guard, Courtney Vandersloot, before the start of this WNBA season.

"My big challenge to her was to score more," Chatman said. "I told her, 'The more selfish you become with the ball in your hands, the more assists you are going to have.' "

The idea was to make defenses lean more toward Vandersloot when she got the ball on a pick-and-roll or ball screen. That would give teammates more room to get open for a pass.

"I don't have to score 20 points or even have 15 assists," Vandersloot said. "It's just doing whatever we need."

What Vandersloot has done in the last eight games is average 12.4 points, 6.9 assists and 3.5 rebounds. Those points and assists are about 25 percent higher and the rebounds slightly higher than her season averages, which all are career bests.

Her production is a big reason the Sky won seven of those eight — with a current five-game winning streak — to earn the first playoff spot in franchise history and take command of the Eastern Conference.

Posted Sep 07 2013 12:02AM

Chicago was without playmaking guard Courtney Vandersloot, who suffered an ankle injury during pregame warmups.
``We missed her a lot,'' Fowles said. ``But even though Sloot wasn't out there, I don't think that's an excuse for us to not get the job done.''
