Following a six-day break for the WNBA’s commissioners cup championship game, the Dallas Wings are back.
Dallas has completed two of three games on their current road trip, and they have looked dominant.

On Friday, the Wings traveled to Connecticut to take on the Sun for a second straight contest.

Much like August 12th at the College Park Center in Arlington, Dallas would come out on top, only this time by a significant margin. 

The Wings took down the Sun 95-75, marking the first time that the Sun have lost a game by 20 or more points since 2021. 

Dallas again dominated down low, grabbing 40 rebounds and outscoring the Sun 52-46 in the paint. 

Arike Ogunbowale led the way for the Wings with 30 points, her 15th 30+ point game of the season. Four other Dallas Wings joined Ogunbowale in double figures as both Teaira McCowan and Kalani Brown tallied 14 points, as well as Natasha Howard, who had 13, and Crystal Dangerfield with 12. 

Two days later, the Wings headed to Washington to take on the Mystics, where they would come away with a 97-84 win. That win would even out Dallas’ road record at 8-8 on the season. 

Once again, the Wings grabbed exactly 40 rebounds marking the 15th time this season that Dallas has seized 40 or more boards. 

Bench production was key on Sunday as the Wings’ bench outscored Washington’s 27-19. Dallas’ second unit was led by 11 points from rookie Maddy Siegrist and 10 from Kalani Brown, who shot 6-6 from the free-throw line. 

Teaira McCowan recorded a double-double with 15 points and 13 rebounds. After the game, McCowan is tied for ninth in the WNBA with eight double-doubles. 

With the two wins, Dallas still sits fourth in the WNBA Standings behind the Aces, Liberty, and Sun, who have all now clinched playoff spots. The top eight teams will make the WNBA playoffs which begin on September 13th. 

The Wings have eight games remaining in the regular season, four of which are home games. 

Dallas ends their three-game road trip this Tuesday in Minnesota, where they take on the Lynx at 7:00 PM from the Target Center. Fans can catch the game on Bally Sports Southwest Extra or Twitter. 

The Wings will return home on Thursday, where they will take on the Lynx. Thursday night at the College Park Center will be 90’s night.
