Shock have final roster set for season opener

Tulsa Shock

The Tulsa Shock had to get the roster down to 12 by Friday, and it hit that mark a day early.

Coach Fred Williams heads into his second season as the head coach, including the two picks in this year’s draft: Amanda Zahui B (first round) and Brianna Kiesel (second round).

Former Oklahoma Sooner Courtney Paris is back with the Shock this season to play in her sixth season in the WNBA.
