Monique Currie Takes on New Hobby
Monique Currie has spent her past five off-seasons playing in South Korea, and played in Turkey, Romania, and Spain in the years before that. But for the first offseason in her WNBA career, Monique Currie is staying in the states to pursue her off-the-court interests. Aside from her real estate investing company, Currie hopes to become a referee for the NBA or WNBA. But to get there, she has to first start somewhere. Currie recently refereed her first high school game.
Speaking of refereeing I had my first game tonight high school girls varsity 🏀 🤗 pic.twitter.com/NQajitkx7e— Monique Currie (@Mocurrie25) November 30, 2018
Alana Beard Vouched to Never to Play Overseas Again
The Duke All-American and WNBA superstar has had her fair share of injuries and surgeries throughout her career, none of which quite compare to this one. While playing in Poland for Polkowice, Beard was accidentally punched in the face by one of her own teammates and was rushed to a foreign hospital to under major eye surgery for an orbital blowout fracture of the medial wall in her eye. But due to complications and not being able to fly home, Beard went to three different hospitals in Poland before being able to see the best eye doctor in the country. She had to wait three weeks before flying home, and wait six more weeks to be back on the court again. It put her behind in the start of the 2018 WNBA, but nonetheless the 36-year-old still won her second consecutive Defensive Player of the Year title.
