The Dallas Wings 2023 season is now three games old, and we have learned a lot about what this team will look like under new head coach Latricia Trammell.
Dallas won their first two games against the Dream and the Storm before falling 88-94 on the road against the Chicago Sky.
After the game, Coach Trammell said:
“We will grow from this. Get some rest and recovery”.
The Wings will be back at the park on Tuesday to take on the Minnesota Lynx. Coming into the game, the Lynx are sitting at 0-4, last place in the WNBA.
With a win on Tuesday, Dallas would improve to 3-1, one of their best four-game records since moving to DFW in 2016.
One of the biggest things that has stood out throughout the Wings’ first three games is the emergence of the big three, which includes Arike Ogunbowale, Satou Sabally, and Natasha Howard.
In each of the first three games, Arike, Satou, and the Flash were the Dallas Wings’ three leading scorers. In fact, each of them has scored ten or more points in every game this season.
This trio has carried the load for the majority of the Dallas offense this season, and that won’t slow done anytime soon.
Arike Ogunbowale is off to one of the best starts in her young WNBA career. Through the first three games, the Wings superstar leads the WNBA with 26.7 points per game.
After the Wings took down the Dream during their first game of the season, Coach Trammell said that Satou Sabally is “ready to breakout this season.” Early on, Sabally is playing an all-around game like we’ve never seen her play.
Sabally has been much improved on the defensive end and has been a facilitator. Not to mention the former Oregon Duck is averaging 22 points per game this season.
When it comes to Natasha Howard, there isn’t much that she has not seen in the WNBA. The veteran forward is come into Dallas and has been playing lights out as well as being a leader for this team.
Overall, the Wings are playing well, and the big three of Ogunbowale, Sabally, and Howard are a huge part of it. Look for this trio to carry the bulk of the scoring load for the Wings this season.
