How Jeanette & Kayla are doing

Jeanette & Kayla played against each other yesterday for the second time this season — a good time to check up and see how they're doing.

During the game, they were even matched up against each other for stretches in the second half.

"That was awesome and I'm glad we got to guard each other too for a while," Kayla said. "She's doing so well for them and it's so great to see her out there."

Jeanette is coming off the bench for the Indiana Fever and is playing an average of 19 minutes per game.

In her report on Friday's game, Mechelle Voepel (ESPN) says that Jeanette has done exactly what head coach Lin Dunn hoped she would — shoot effectively coming off the bench. She has made 24 of 46 attempts from beyond the arc for an average of 0.522, which is the best in the league! She ranks #16 in 3-pointers per game.

Mechelle Voepel says that Kayla has been one of the Tulsa Shock's bright spots in a bleak (1-18) 2011 season.

She has started in all but three games this season and plays an average of 30 minutes per game (#19 in the league). She averages 9.5 points, 4.5 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.47 steals (#9 in the league) per game.
