On Sunday afternoon, the Dallas Wings took down the Washington Mystics 89-72 to secure their second straight win.
WNBA All-Star Satou Sabally led the way for Dallas as she tallied a season-high 27 points and 15 rebounds. Wings center Teaira McCowan also tallied a double-double as she recorded 10 points and 11 rebounds.
Arike Ogunbowale scored all 17 of her points in the second half including a fadeaway jumper which made her the Dallas Wings’ all-time leading scorer passing Skylar Diggins-Smith.
After the game, the new Dallas all-time leading scorer said:
“It’s dope definitely, I love it here in Dallas and hopefully that number keeps going up, it’s definitely a blessing to have that now.”
The Wings’ two straight wins now put their record at 8-8 on the season which is good for 5th place in the WNBA standings.
Winning two straight wins is certainly good news for the Wings but the tough news is that they will now take on the first-place 15-1 Las Vegas Aces in two games this week. Las Vegas’ only loss of the season came way back on June 8th when they fell 94-77 to the Connecticut Sun. Coming into play on Wednesday the Aces will have a 9-1 record in their last 10 games.
Dallas and Vegas will play on Wednesday at Michelob ULTRA Arena in Las Vegas at 9:00 PM CT. The Wings will return home to the College Park Center on Friday where they will take on the Aces at 7:00 PM CST.
Fans can catch Wednesday night’s game on Bally Sports Southwest Extra as the Wings will play their 9th road game of the season. Dallas is 2-6 on the road this season.
On Friday, fans can come out to the College Park Center in Arlington for the Wings Sneakerhead theme night which includes a Wings Sneakerhead convention and a Wings sneaker keychain giveaway for the first 2,000 fans.
If you can’t make it out to the park Friday Night, you can catch all the action on ION as part of the WNBA on ION Friday Night Showcase.
This will be the Wings’ toughest challenge of the season to this point and throughout these two games, we will really be able to learn a lot about this team and how real they are.
