Tina Thompson is the only original Comet left now after Sheryl Swoopess recent departure to the Seattle Storm (thank goodness I thought shed never leave!), but Tamecka Dixon and Mwadi Mabika have also been in the league since its inception, so there is some real depth on the boards. At a reported weight of 158 lbs., Michelle Snow is still on the skinny side (my opinion, my opinion), but 65 is 65, so maybe it doesnt really matter how much she weighs.
Preseason play included a Comets win over the San Antonio Silver Stars 74 to 68 (the Comets led by as much as 14 points during the first half, but saw a rally from the Stars as they got closer to the final buzzer). Tipoff today is at 7:30 p.m. Reliant Arena, One Reliant Park. For tickets and information, call 713-627-9622 or visit www.houstoncomets.com. $10 to $340.
