Liberty’s Weatherspoon Fined $250

July 25, 2001

NEW YORK (AP) _ New York Liberty guard Teresa Weatherspoon was fined $250 by the WNBA on Wednesday for a flagrant foul against the Miami Sol’s Debbie Black.

In the Liberty’s 68-52 home loss Sunday, Weatherspoon shoved Black to the floor after missing a shot from halfcourt at the end of the first half.

Black caught up with Weatherspoon near the tunnel, and the two point guards were separated by the Liberty’s 6-foot-3 Sue Wicks and security guards.

Seven technical fouls were called in the game, including a pair of double technicals against Black and Weatherspoon.

``I went up to (Weatherspoon) and said, ’Hey, that wasn’t necessary,‴ Black said after the game. ``That was all I said, I wasn’t trying to fight her. There was nothing in that, other than I got a technical out of it.″
