Mindful of last week's major-league baseball fiasco in Milwaukee, the WNBA players and management have issued a promise for tonight's fourth annual All-Star Game: no ties. "We ain't tying nothing - except [our] shoes getting ready to play," said Teresa Weatherspoon, point guard for the New York Liberty. "These fans won't be walking out of here - whether we [have to] go to another half, another quarter, five minutes, or something. "We ain't letting anybody walk out. We want to finish it. . . . " Last Tuesday night, in a controversial decision, baseball commissioner Bud Selig ended the All-Star Game in a 7-7 tie after the 11th inning because of a shortage of players.

It was obvious how much of a difference the return of Ticha Penicheiro and Yolanda Griffith meant to the Sacramento Monarchs. Taking a pass from Penicheiro, Lady Grooms made a layup off an inbounds play with 6.5 seconds remaining to lift the Monarchs, 71-69, over the visiting Cleveland Rockers yesterday and snap their eight-game losing streak. Playing her first game since the season opener, Griffith had 15 points and 10 rebounds. Griffith (neck injury) and Penicheiro, who missed the last eight games with a sprained right shoulder, combined for Sacramento's previous 13 points before Grooms' game-winner.
