Ashley Walker Adjusts to Small Forward Position
As the Seattle Storm has practiced this week at The Furtado Center, rookie Ashley Walker has had a new focus. Walker is now playing at small forward after splitting her time between the two forward positions during training camp and the early part of the season.
“The reason is she’s 5-11, 6-0 – her future is going to be there,” explained Head Coach Brian Agler. “We have a lot of depth at the post. I just think it’s for the benefit of her career and our situation that she play there.”
“I definitely think in the league I’m not that tall,” agreed Walker, “so I’m a tall guard and a good rebounding guard.”
