In the wake of a recent on-court brawl, the WNBA’s Detroit Shock were short on players and in a serious bind. Coming to the rescue, former silver-medalist and current WNBA broadcaster Nancy Lieberman was signed to a 7-day contract. At 50 years old, Lieberman will break her own record for oldest WNBA player. While the Shock’s coach admits he doesn’t know how Lieberman will perform, he says Lieberman is in great shape and is giving her a shot. As for Lieberman, she’s just happy to get a chance to play the sport she loves.
