Mercury star Diana Taurasu weds ex-teammate Penny Taylor.

PHOENIX (AP) - Diana Taurasi married former Phoenix Mercury teammate Penny Taylor less than 24 hours before the team's season opener.

The 34-year-old Taurasi has played for the Mercury since 2004, helping the team win three titles. She also helped the U.S. win four consecutive Olympic gold medals.

The couple married Saturday.

Taurasi had a rough season opener on Sunday, shooting 1-for-11 in the 68-58 loss to the Dallas Wings.

Taylor, who will turn 36 next week, retired last summer after a 13-year career in the WNBA. She played her final 10 seasons in Phoenix and is now the team's director of player personnel.

She previously was married to a Brazilian beach volleyball player, but the couple divorced after three years. The two WNBA players had kept their relationship out of the public spotlight.
