It has been a difficult summer for Nolan Richardson. The former Bowie Bear and UTEP Miner is head coach of the Tulsa Shock in the WNBA and his team is riding a 12 game losing streak.
Natasha Lacy was part of the team but the Shock released the former Montwood Ram in an effort to "shake up" the roster.
The strategy did not work.
Tina Thompson scored 24 points for Los Angeles in an 87-71 win against Tulsa on Tuesday.
