TULSA - The Tulsa Shock doesn't just have an Olympian.

It has a history-making Olympian. They're calling her "Slambage."

Liz Cambage became the first woman to dunk in Olympic competition with her one-handed slam against Russia in Team Australia's 70-66 win on Aug. 2.


After her run through the Olympics, Cambage will rejoin her Shock teammates, including Ivory Latta.

I met Ivory at the BOK Center for a little game of P-I-G.

And folks, this wasn't even close.

I didn't exactly miss every shot I took, but I also didn't make anything that Ivory couldn't.

This would be a quick rout!

Shots from the top of the key. Shots from behind the backboard. Shots that were bounced off the floor. Ivory simply couldn't miss!

These 2 for the Gold Olympic challenges have not gone well for me!

Here's to wishing Ivory, "Slambage" and the rest of the Tulsa Shock a great second half of the season.
