Liberty look to catch winning Fever

After the Liberty lost its opener, 78-73 to the Connecticut Sun in the Garden, coach John Whisenant said he liked his team. Judging by the way they have played, one must ask if the players like him.

The Liberty (0-4) is one of just three winless teams in the WNBA and the prospects for a first win are grim.

They play at the Indiana Fever (3-0), one of three undefeated teams, Saturday night (7 p.m, not on television). The teams then do it again Sunday night at the Prudential Center.

The Liberty have never opened a season 0-5. Worse, they have shown no signs of improving. After dropping the opener by five, the Liberty lost a rematch with the Sun in Connecticut by 15 (92-77). Then came an 18-point loss to the Minnesota Lynx, the defending WNBA champs. And the most recent loss was a 26-point blowout in Atlanta, 100-74, to the Dream.

No doubt the Liberty have played a brutally tough schedule. But this franchise, still searching for its first league title, has played tough schedules before.

This is Whisenants second season with the Liberty. The franchise believed one of the greatest players in womens basketball history Carol Blazejowski had taken the team as far as it could go. She was the GM from Day 1.

The Liberty went 19-15 last season and was eliminated in the first round of the playoffs. The early part of the season was focused on learning Whisenants new systems. This season he incorporated some of former Knicks coach Mike DAntonis offense. But the Liberty is averaging just 71.5 points per game, third worst in the league. and they are dead last in point differantial (-16), allowing 87.5 points.
