Hm.

§ Shock forward Plenette Pierson has been suspended for four games for her actions that initiated and escalated the altercation.

§ Shock assistant coach Rick Mahorn has been suspended for two games for escalating the altercation.

§ Shock center Kara Braxton has been suspended for one game for leaving the area of the bench during an on-court altercation.

§ Shock forward Tasha Humphrey has been suspended for one game for leaving the area of the bench during an on-court altercation.

§ Shock guard Elaine Powell has been suspended for one game for leaving the area of the bench during an on-court altercation.

§ Shock forward Sheri Sam has been suspended for one game for leaving the area of the bench during an on-court altercation.

§ Sparks guard Shannon Bobbitt has been suspended for two games for leaving the area of the bench and becoming physically involved in an on-court altercation.

§ Sparks guard Murriel Page has been suspended for two games for leaving the area of the bench and becoming physically involved in an on-court altercation.

§ Sparks center Lisa Leslie has been suspended for one game for throwing a punch.

§ Sparks forward DeLisha Milton-Jones has been suspended for one game for throwing a punch.

§ Sparks forward Candace Parker has been suspended for one game for throwing a punch.

As is league policy, in order to enable the Shock and Sparks to dress the minimum number of players (eight) for games affected by the penalties, the dates on which players will begin serving their suspensions will be staggered and follow alphabetical order.

* Pierson and Mahorn will begin serving their respective suspensions with tonight's game at Houston. Braxton and Humphrey will serve their suspensions tonight as well.

*Sam will serve her suspension on July 27, when the Shock hosts San Antonio.

*Powell is injured and will serve her suspension at a later date after being medically cleared to play.

*Bobbitt will begin serving her suspension with tonight's game at Connecticut. Leslie, Milton-Jones and Parker will serve their suspensions tonight as well.

*Page will begin serving her suspension on July 25 when the Sparks visit New York.




I'm stunned that Parker only got one game; I realize she's the league's golden girl, but she was one of the main participants. And why is Tweety not on the list? She tackled Parker, and looked like she was going after Bobbitt after she hit Mahorn (bounced off him is more like it, heh).
