Mystics Q&A With Lindsey Harding
September 8, 2010
WashingtonMystics.com: You just finished up the†first set of practices in D.C., how much does it help you comfort wise to start the practices in D.C.?
Lindsey Harding: The good thing is I can stay in my same apartment and I donít have to stay in the hotels.† I think Iím also more comfortable because I trained with Geno (Auriemma) last year and a lot of it was review from last year. †But the best part of playing in D.C. is coming home to my own apartment.
WM.com: Have you noticed a difference in your game and confidence since your all-star nomination and appearance, and does that sort of accolade help you when you come to a tryout like this?
LH: Every player here is an All-Star.† To finally be named to one of them was great for me and it has always been a goal of mine to become an All-Star in this league.† It definitely gives me confidence.† But being around these great players you have to bring it at every practice.†
WM.com: You mentioned Geno earlier, when you were at Duke you helped the Blue Devils end one of the great Connecticut home-winning streaks. They had won 69 straight home games and along with your current teammates, Monique Currie and Alana Beard you helped end that streak.† Has there been any sort of trash talk on your end to remind Geno of that?
LH: I will tell you what, because of the success that he has had at UConn he is a very confident guy and he likes to throw that out to some people.† He hasnít thrown anything at me about that yet, but if he does I will have that win in my back pocket..
