Cheryl Ford could open up a little

Kudos to former Lady Techsters star Cheryl Ford for being selected to the 2006 FIBA World Championship team. Ford had a stellar year by leading the WNBA in rebounding and has her Detroit Shock on the verge of their second title.

But Ford could stand to be a little more media friendly. Ford was "unable to make the teleconference" announcing her selection, although a quote from her was included in a news release. We've tried to contact her several times through the Shock Media Relations Department for various WNBA stories and have yet to be granted an interview.

In contrast, Alana Beard, who was also selected to the FIBA team, always returns calls in a timely fashion. We've also had success cornering Tamicha Jackson, Vickie Johnson and Betty Lennox.

Some might argue that Ford is media-shy, but she performed very well in postgame interviews while she was a Lady Techster.
