Ramu Tokashiki's first season in the world's premier club basketball competition for women came to a close with a loss on Sunday, but the Seattle Storm's Japanese rookie has already proved she belongs in the WNBA.

The Storm's 59-58 loss to San Antonio in the final game of the season was meaningless as the Seattle-based team, WNBA champions in 2004 and 2010, had already been eliminated from the playoffs. The game, however, gave head coach Jenny Boucek the opportunity to test Tokashiki one final time in front of the team's home crowd, and she passed with flying colors.

Against San Antonio, Boucek moved the 191-cm Tokashiki to small forward, a position she had never played before, to test her ability against faster and smaller opponents.
