NEW YORK (AP) Liz Cambage was emotional as she talked about the fires that have devastated her native Australia.

The Las Vegas Aces star was heading home, after a brief trip to the U.S., to train with the national team to get ready for their Olympic qualifier next month.

"It's devastating at home. I didn't realize till I landed in Melbourne," she said in a phone interview with the AP. "Everyone is wearing a mask at home, it's the worst air quality. It's scary. Right now we're seeing the first stages of extreme climate change. Fires to golf ball (sized hail) raining down from the sky that no one can escape."
