Angel McCoughtry Grows Up A Little

"I was so excited. It felt so good to be back on the floor. I'll never take basketball for granted again." 

--Angel McCoughtry, the WNBA's and the Atlanta Dream's leading scorer, after coming back from a multi-game suspension. McCoughtry led the team to a win after scoring 18 points in the fourth quarter.

The Atlanta Dream are starting a push toward playoff success.  WNBA finalists two years running, the Dream have caught late-season fire both years and need to do so again to get a favorable seed in this years' WNBA playoffs.  They need McCoughtry if they are to be there again.  However, they recently fired their head coach, Marynell Meadors.

Will new coach Fred Williams be able to handle the previously tempermental McCoughtry?  Has Angel turned the corner toward maturity?
