Fullcourt invited players from around the WNBA to blog periodically throughout the 2014 season. Today, Storm rookie forward Angel Robinsonreflects on lessons learned in the WNBA's short season.
Someone commented the other day that the season is half over, and I thought, already? It feels like it's only been a few weeks. This season is going by quickly. I wish playing overseas was like that, but that's the difference between eight months versus four.
The WNBA is coming off of a weekend of hot action that was full of breath taking last second heroics. The Connecticut Sun's Renee Montgomery and the San Antonio Stars' Kayla McBride were the starring attractions with an honorable mention to the Indiana Fever's Briann January. The league continues to display how ultra competitive that it is. No WNBA team is safe from catching an 'L' regardless of who's on the schedule. Playoff positioning is looming and therefore the games intensity will only increase every week.

When I get asked about how I am adjusting to the WNBA, I guess the easiest thing would be to point to a couple of recent games.
The other night against Chicago, I had the best game of my rookie season in the WNBA. I finished with career-highs of 23 points and 11 rebounds. A few nights later, I had six points and two rebounds against San Antonio.
Along with the Fourth of the July holiday will come some top-flight action in the WNBA this week. Here are two of the games to add to your "must-watch" list; unfortunately, neither game is scheduled to be televised outside the local markets, but both will be available via the WNBA's Live Access:
Coming Up this Week: June 30-July 6
Chicago Sky @ Phoenix Mercury, Wednesday, July 2, 10 p.m. EST (Live Access)
Fullcourt invited players from around the WNBA to blog periodically throughout the 2014 season. Today, Mystics rookies Stefanie Dolson and Bria Hartley - who were also roommates at UConn - check in together.
Dolson: It's been hard getting used to losing games. Losing sucks in general, but coming from UConn, where we lost only 11 games during my career there, it's an adjustment.
