The Dallas Wings wrapped up their three-game home stand on Friday night when they took on the Washington Mystics from the College Park Center in Arlington.
Last time out on Tuesday, the Wings fell 88-83 at the hands of the Connecticut Sun, snapping their five-game win streak.
With a win today, Dallas could get back on track before heading on a road trip that includes stops in Vegas and Seattle.
The Wings’ usual domination down low was very present in this one. After one, Dallas led 24-12 but out-rebounded the Mystics 15-5.
You don’t usually think of Teaira McCowan as a tremendous scorer, but she led all players with 14 first-quarter points.
Dallas led 43-29 at the half after continuing its domination down low. Teaira McCowan led all scorers with 16, but Satou Sabally also had an impressive stat line with 7 points, 6 rebounds, and 6 assists.
To start the second half, the Wings came out of the gates a little sluggish, as Washington would cut the lead to single digits at one point. With 5:14 to play, the Wings’ lead had dwindled to 49-42. However, a late run to end the quarter would make the Wings lead a lot more comfortable as they lead 68-51 with one quarter to go.
A big 4th quarter would secure a 90-62 win for the Wings as they closed out their home stand with a dominant performance.
Satou Sabally had a historic night as 14 points, 11 rebounds, and 10 assists would secure her first career triple-double. Sabally’s effort was the Wings’ first triple-double since moving to Dallas in 2016.
Following this win, the Wings will hit the road, where they will take on the Las Vegas Aces on Sunday at 5:00 PM CST.
