Cappie not happy about call

By Ian Begley

Essence Carson was whistled for a foul on Angel McCoughtry with 44.2 seconds to go in the fourth quarter and the Liberty ahead, 75-74.

McCoughtry knocked down both free throws to put the Dream up by one in a game they'd go on to win, 81-75.

Cappie Pondexter wasn't happy with the call and -- at the risk of a fine from the WNBA -- wants to let you know about it.

"It’s frustrating when a crucial call is made like it was," Pondexter said. "I don’t care if I get fined ... You’ve got to let teams battle it out."

Pondexter also pointed out that McCoughtry went to the line 17 times in the game.

"Maybe she was more aggressive than I was," she said facetiously.

Overall, the Dream went to the line 31 times, making 21 free throws. The Liberty shot 12 of 14 from the line.
