The Dayton Daily makes up the news

As most of my readers know- I’m a huge University of Dayton Women’s basketball fan. So last night- I was at Milano’s watching the first battle of the roommates- and former Flyers, Andrea Hoover who was a third-round pick by the LA Sparks and Ally Malott who was a first-round pick by the Washington Mystics.

Unfortunately, Hoover’s Sparks continued their losing streak and lost.
But, no, wait, the Dayton Daily news gave the game to…. well….

WNBA  Malott’s Sparks win Flyer reunion  Former University of Dayton standouts Andrea Hoover and Ally Malott played against each other for the first time as professionals Tuesday, and while Hoover put up better numbers, Malott’s team, the Los Angeles Sparks, beat the host Washington Mystics 84-80.  Both players came off the bench, Hoover for 20 minutes, Malott for eight. Hoover scored four points on 1-for-5 shooting and grabbed four rebounds. Malott did not attempt a shot and went scoreless.
