Diana Taurasi denies taking stimulant
The AP reports:
Diana Taurasi insists she did nothing wrong.
The former Connecticut womenís basketball star says she hadnít even heard of the banned stimulant modafinil until she found out she had tested positive for it. And no matter what those results showed, Taurasi is adamant that she never used performance-enhancing drugs.
ďIíve never needed anything to help me. Only thing that Iím guilty of is taking too many jump shots,Ē she told The Associated Press by telephone Sunday night from her parentsí home in Chino, Calif.
In her first interview since testing positive in December for modafinil, Taurasi and her lawyer blamed the Turkish lab where the sample was analyzed.
