Fever Face Monarchs At Home

Last updated on Tuesday, June 24, 2008

(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - The Indiana Fever return home tonight to face the Sacramento Monarchs.

The Fever are coming off an 0-and-2 west coast trip which saw Indiana lose at Seattle and Los Angeles to fall to 6-and-6. It is Indiana's first back-to-back losses of the year as the Fever have dropped three of their last four.

The Monarchs are coming off an 82-70 win over Chicago Sunday night in Sacramento. The Monarchs also enter tonight's game with a 6-and-6 record.

Indiana's cold streak coincides with the return of forward Tamika Catchings. Catchings scored a team-high 17 points in Sunday night's loss to the Sparks. It was the first start of the season for the five-time WNBA all-star who missed the first eight games of the season recovering from surgery to repair a torn achilles tendon.

Catchings said following the LA loss that she feel's good but is still slightly hampered when she tries to move laterally.
