Liz Cambage bails on Tulsa Shock, cites fatigue
I wonder why??
AUSTRALIAN star Liz Cambage, the No.2 overall pick in last year's WNBA draft, has decided not to play the rest of this season with the Tulsa Shock after winning a bronze medal with the Opals at the London Olympics.
The Shock announced on Tuesday that Cambage will not return to the team this season.
She had been expected to return to Tulsa on Monday but did not board her flight back from Australia.
The team had been promoting her expected return in Thursday night's home game against Los Angeles after she became the first woman to slam dunk in an Olympic game during the Opals' win over Russia.
Team president Steve Swetoha says Tulsa looks forward to Cambage rejoining the Shock for the 2013 season.
The Shock, who are tied for the league's worst record at 4 wins and 19 losses, play at Atlanta on Tuesday.
