After claiming the WNBA title in 2007 and 2009, the Phoenix Mercury seek to close out a 2012 campaign with a string of victories as the regular season wraps up. Guard DeWanna Bonner has leapt into the role as team leader, averaging 19 points per game and delivering the day’s homework assignments to the team every evening. First-year guard Samantha Prahalis joins Bonner in the Mercury backcourt with consistent play of her own. Despite being a rookie, Prahalis has started all 21 games for the Mercury this season, proving to be more beneficial than training regimens that use medicine balls as just that, medicine.
