Mystics Win Over Houston Comets In Pre-season Action

May 13, 2008 - The Washington Mystics are now 3-0 in preseason action as they win, 72-66, over the Houston Comets at the Verizon Center.

Nakia Sanford was the high scorer for the Mystics with 14 points, followed by guard, Monique Curry, with 12.

Matee Ajavon led the Comets with 26 points, in front of Mistie Williams' six points.

The Mystics have been making team cuts and trades to round out their 13 woman roster.

Previous team members, Gillian Goring, and Tamara Jones were recently waived by the Mystics organization, while DeLisha Milton Jones, wanting a chance at a WNBA title, was traded to the LA Sparks. (Which answers this question).

The Mystics acquired, in a trade for DeLisha Milton Jones, Taj McWilliams-Franklin and scored big by choosing University of Maryland's Crystal Langhorne in this year's WNBA Draft.

The Mystics defeated both Sacramento (May 5th), and New York Liberty (May 8th) previously, and look now toward the season opener with Indiana Fever on May 17th at Conseco Fieldhouse.
