Courtney Hurt cut by Indiana Fever

This WNBA thing moves quickly, doesn't it?

On April 16, former VCU star Courtney Hurt celebrated being a third-round draft pick of the Indiana Fever. Sunday, she began training camp. On Wednesday, she was cut.

That Hurt, who led Division I in rebounding two years in a row, survived just a few days speaks to how difficult it is to make a team in a league where roster limits are capped at 11. Our main hope was that Hurt would at least make it to the Fever's first preseason game Saturday at San Antonio.

Old Dominion's Tia Lewis was also released Wednesday by the Washington Mystics, another victim of the WNBA training camp syndrome of too many players, too few roster spots. But as this writing, former JMU standout Dawn Evans is still fighting the good fight in her bid to stick with the Connecticut Sun.
