TULSA, Oklahoma — Disgraced former American Olympian Marion Jones had no points and spent most of the game watching her teammates from the bench in her professional basketball debut on Saturday.
Jones had little impact in the first WNBA game for the Tulsa Shock who lost their inaugural game 80-74 to the Minnesota Lynx.
Jones, who won a national women's championship for North Carolina in college, made her return to basketball after more than a decade away.
In between, she was stripped of her five Olympic track medals - including three golds - and served time in prison for lying to federal investigators.
Jones played less than four minutes and was held scoreless. She took no shots and was penalized one foul.
Charde Houston scored 17 of her 21 points in the second half for Minnesota.
