Cappie Pondexter

Video: Watch a WNBA star take it to Sebastian Telfair


Friday, the final day of the Impact Competitive Training Series, was a super casual little run that really didn’t offer much. The small crowd was silent.

Except where WNBA star Cappie Pondexter took it to Sebastian Telfair.

If you don’t know Pondexter, she is a two-time All WNBA first team guard now of the New York Liberty, and she is the 2007 WNBA finals MVP. She averaged 21.4 points per game last year and shot 43 percent from three. Her crossover is better than yours. And in the game Friday she and Telfair traded some plays. And Pondexter got the better or it.
