Sanford: "I don't care how beat up they are."

It is hard to consider anyone take the two-time defending WNBA champion Detroit Shock lightly. But just in case the Mystics, or anyone else in the league, thought they had lost a step after a lackluster 78-58 showing in the season opener and were vulnerable without Cheryl Ford (knee), Plenette Pierson (shoulder) and Kara Braxton (suspension), the Shock showed that they still possess all the grit that Bill Laimbeer's teams are known for in an 81-52 win over the Sparks yesterday.

If you haven't already, check out today's story about how Washington is eager to face an early test, and catch Nakia Sanford's opinion on what a win in Detroit would mean to the Mystics.

"A win on the road in Detroit would be big. I don't care how beat up they are," Sanford said. "They could be out there on one leg hopping around with two fingers and they're still Detroit. Even at diminished capacity, they have so many high-level athletes on that team that a win would mean a lot against them. We can't go into it thinking about who they don't have."

Love the quote from Sanford. You can never underestimate the Shock.

This will be a good early test for the new and improved Mystics. 3-0 looks good to me. Hopefully :)
