An amzing response to Mel Thomas today. The senior guard, who is out for the rest of the season and underwent surgery yesterday, attended the game this afternoon.
As Thomas made her way out to her place behind the bench with Kalana Greene, the crowd rose to its feet and cheered. It was unsual because on the press row side of the court, it was difficult to see what the commotion was about. That was because of the large hat men carrying the american flag for the national athem. I think the woman who was preparing to sing the anthem thought her entire family showed up at the XL Center.
Instead it was Thomas, who will be honored before Monday's game against North Carolina.
