Marion Jones goes scoreless in her WNBA debut

SHARE Marion Jones goes scoreless in her WNBA debut

Marion Jones’ WNBA debut last night was anything but spectacular.

The disgraced Olympian went scoreless and spent a majority of the game on the bench as her Tulsa Shock fell to the Minnesota Lynx, 80-74.

Jones, who won a national championship at North Carolina, was making her return to competitive basketball after a decade-plus absence.

She was stripped of her five Olympic medals — including her three gold — and spent six months in jail for lying to prosecutors about her steroid use.

At the age of 34, she’s the league’s oldest rookie.
