PODCAST: San Antonio Stars coach Vickie Johnson talks new stars, old times

San Antonio Stars coach Vickie Johnson told The Summitt Thursday afternoon that she’ll have to wait a bit longer to play her vaunted three-guard lineup of Kelsey Plum, Moriah Jefferson and Kayla McBride.

“I don’t really know,” Johnson said of the timetable for her excellent perimeter trio. “We’re going to take it one game at a time. So I know it’s not going to be tomorrow. So hopefully next Thursday. But I don’t know.”

The good news is this clears the way for the unexpected leading scorer in the WNBA, Monique Currie, to continue padding her lead.

Johnson spoke to The Summitt at length, detailing her plans on both the offensive and defensive ends. A goal is to finish in the top two in pace, along with every other category.

Johnson also discussed her tenure with the New York Liberty, who honored their longtime standout guard this past weekend at Madison Square Garden.
