The Storm cut Jasmine Lister on Monday, bringing its roster to 11 players.

Brian Agler, the team’s coach and general manager, brought in players like Lister, a 5-foot-4 point guard, to fill gaps in the guard rotation due to veterans Sue Bird, Temeka Johnson and Tanisha Wright reporting late due to commitments with overseas teams.

With the veterans available, Lister played five minutes Sunday, all in the second half, in the Storm’s only exhibition. She didn’t score and grabbed one rebound.

“The game is a lot quicker and you have to pick up things quickly,” said Lister, out of Vanderbilt. “I’m grateful for even making it this far. I’ve gotten better as a player just competing at this level of play.”

Storm second-round draft choice Michelle Plouffe, a 6-4 forward, remains on the 11-player roster and is likely to remain when final rosters are due Thursday.

Seattle’s season opener is Friday against Los Angeles in KeyArena.

Elsewhere, former Gonzaga guard Haiden Palmer was cut by Indiana. Palmer, a 5-8 guard, was the Fever’s third-round draft choice.

SEAHAWKS

• The Seahawks made a roster move, releasing long snapper Jurgen Hus, who signed in April. That leaves Clint Greshman as the lone long snapper.

COLLEGE BASEBALL

• Washington announced that pitcher Ryan Schmitten, currently with Pierce College in Lakewood, has agreed to a financial-aid agreement to pitch for the Huskies next year. Schmitten is 4-0 with a 1.19 ERA in eight games this year for Pierce. He has struck out 32 and walked six in 372 / 3  innings. Before missing the 2013 season because of surgery, Schmitten, out of Puyallup High, was 7-1 with a 0.78 ERA in 2012.

Men’s BASKETBALL

Jackie Davis, a 6-3 guard who averaged 23.6 points last year at Rolling Hills Prep in San Pedro, Calif., signed a letter of intent to play at Washington State.
