Basketball: Shamed Jones finds her new hoop dream

Disgraced athlete Marion Jones played for less than four minutes and failed to score a point on her WNBA debut on Saturday night.

Jones (above), who won a national championship for North Carolina in college, made her return to basketball after more than a decade away.

The 34-year-old, who was stripped of her five Olympic medals and served time in prison for lying over her steroid use, was on court for three minutes and 19 seconds as the Tulsa Shock lost 80-74 to the Minnesota Lynx in their season opener.
