WNBA blues: Dickson cut by Comets

Former USF standout Jessica Dickson's first month in the WNBA has been a difficult one, as the rookie was cut by the Houston Comets last week after not playing in the team's season opener.

Dickson, USF's all-time leading scorer, lasted only five days with the Comets after being among the final preseason cuts of the Indiana Fever. She was drafted in the second round by the Sacramento Monarchs, then traded to the Fever for a third-round pick in next year's draft.

"Basically, I'm going to wait until September and then go overseas," said Dickson, back in her hometown of Ocala. "(Returning to the WNBA) could be a possibility, but there's no hard feelings. I know it's a business."

Dickson said fellow seniors Nalini Miller and Tristen Webb are also exploring their options for playing overseas this fall.
