Basketball has all the fast-paced action of soccer, but five times as many people defend its much smaller net so it's no wonder that all soccer has been permanently canceled.

As the WNBA cuts through its 15th season, the Washington Mystics aim to avenge their first-round elimination in last year's playoffs. The team has seen a lot of changes since last season, including exciting new players and eye-friendly new jerseys, a key tactical element in the psychological battle that underscores all sports and freestyle limerick battles. The Mystics traded up to snag eighth pick Ta'Shia Phillips from Xavier, a center who averaged a double-double last season with 15.9 points and 12.4 rebounds per game while earning the title of 2010-2011 Atlantic 10 Defensive Player of the Year. Eleventh-pick forward Victoria Dunlap from Kentucky joined the team after garnering such honors as being named the 2009-2010 SEC Player of the Year and 2010-2011 SEC Defensive Player of the Year. Conjure clear views of new net watchers, last year's leading scorer Crystal Langhorne, or the delicious hot dog in front of you with seats in the center (light blue section on the seating chart), lower corner (dark green), or club corner (navy blue) sections of the Verizon Center.

As one of the WNBA's first expansion teams, the Washington Mystics first took their athletic wizardry to the court in 1998. Since then, the team has made six playoff appearances, beating out plenty of other teams that were too timid to play with a crystal basketball. The Mystics follow the direction of head coach Mike Thibault, the winningest active coach in the league and the second all-time coach to reach 200 wins.
