Marion Jones goes scoreless in her WNBA debut

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
Marion Jones' WNBA debut last night was anything but spectacular.

The disgraced Olympian went scoreless and spent a majority of the game on the bench as her Tulsa Shock fell to the Minnesota Lynx, 80-74.

Jones, who won a national championship at North Carolina, was making her return to competitive basketball after a decade-plus absence.

She was stripped of her five Olympic medals -- including her three gold -- and spent six months in jail for lying to prosecutors about her steroid use.

At the age of 34, she's the league's oldest rookie.
