Voepel: Cambage Focused on Rest
While some peers say she is full of potential and on the road to greatness, Liz Cambage is focused on her next stop. Right now, that's an extended rest, and then a pro stint in China reportedly worth $400,000, writes Mechelle Voepel. Story
The Shock announced Tuesday that Cambage will not return to the team this season. She had been expected to return to Tulsa on Monday but did not board her flight back from Australia.
The team had been promoting her expected return in Thursday night's home game against Los Angeles after she dunked in an Olympic game.
Team president Steve Swetoha says Tulsa looks forward to Cambage rejoining the Shock for the 2013 season.
The Shock, who are tied for the league's worst record at 4-19, play at Atlanta on Tuesday night.
