Comets regain services of guard Hodges

The Houston Comets sign guard Roneeka Hodges to a seven-day contract, coach and GM Karleen Thompson announced Saturday.Earlier this year, Houston lost Hodges in the WNBA expansion draft for the league's newest franchise, the Atlanta Dream. Hodges was then traded by Atlanta to the Seattle Storm along with the No. 4 pick in the draft in exchange for Iziane Castro Marques and the No. 8 pick.

She was briefly reunited with her sister Doneeka Hodges on Seattle's training camp roster but both were waived by the Storm prior to the start of the 2008 regular season.

Roneeka Hodges has played all three of her WNBA seasons with the Comets, posting averages of 4.3 points per game and 1.3 rebounds in 88 career games, including 12 starts. She was selected by the Comets in the second round (No. 15 overall) in the 2005 WNBA Draft.

The Comets embark on a three-game road trip to face the Phoenix Mercury on July 8, the Los Angeles Sparks on July 9 and the Minnesota Lynx on July 12. The Comets' next home game in Reliant Arena is July 17 at 11am against the Lynx for their annual Kids Day.
