One Super Important Question for Dawn Trudeau

The Seattle Storm – our WNBA team – just picked 1st in the 2015 draft. Who did they select? Jewell Loyd, a 20-point scorer and the census best college player, from Notre Dame. Given the Storm’s poor finish last year and their recent coup in the draft, I wanted to ask team co-owner, Dawn Trudeau, one super important question. 


Jake Uitti: After a disappointing 12-22 season for the Storm, a team that usually finishes in the top of the standings, what do you think 2015 will look like for your group after the addition of star guard Jewell Loyd?

Dawn Trudeau: We will be a young team that needs time to gel together, but at the same time I think we will be playing upbeat basketball that will be entertaining to watch. Certainly we added significant ability to score baskets. We believe we are in a rebuilding mode for a couple of years. Even a player like Brittany Griner or Maya Moore needed a couple of years to get used to the physical play and speed of the WNBA compared to college. But 2015 will be a fun year, and we are excited about our potential. We are putting some key pieces in place that will help us for many years down the road.
