Mahorn Changes Backcourt

Rick Mahorn, Shock Head Coach, has made a change to the team's starting lineup. Alexis Hornbuckle has been named the starting point guard, replacing struggling rookie Shavonte Zellous.

Though small forward Katie Smith runs the offense, Zellous has been asked to focus on being aggressive offensively, looking to shoot the ball whenever possible. However, the rookie has struggled with her jumper, leading to the decision to bring Zellous off the bench and relieve some of the pressure.

All parties involved appear satisfied with the lineup change, which should give Detroit's bench a little more offensive firepower and better defense in the starting lineup with Hornbuckle.
