JENNIFER GILLOM TALKS ABOUT THE “TOUGH SEASON”
by Denise J Saul
Lisa Leslie was in the building at Staples Center once again, having her #9 jersey retired. But on this historic night, the Sparks looked nothing like the team Leslie held together for her 13 WNBA seasons. The Indiana Fever played spoilers, defeating the Sparks 82-76. With the loss, the Sparks are on the outside looking in on the playoff picture, but remarkably, the are still in the hunt for a spot sitting just one game behind fourth place San Antonio.
I caught up with head coach Jennifer Gillom in NYC after her team lost to the Liberty and asked her to assess the Sparks’ season thus far. Coach Gillom was gracious, forthright and confident in her answers..take a look!!
