The Dallas Wings will tip off their 2024 season tomorrow, and it is expected to be the team’s biggest in franchise history. 

Following a sold-out preseason win against Caitlin Clark and the Indiana Fever, the Wings’ excitement is at an all-time high.

The team announced sell-outs for the Wings’ first two games against the Chicago Sky this Wednesday and Saturday. 

This all comes after the Wings announced their first-ever sell-out of season ticket memberships, forcing fans to join a waitlist if they want a chance at securing select 2024 tickets. 

Not only is the excitement off the court at an all-time high, but on the court, the Wings are coming off their best season in team history. The Wings finished with a franchise-best 22-18 record and won a playoff series for the first time in history, making it to the WNBA semifinals before losing to the eventual champion Las Vegas Aces. 

However, the 2024 Wings will look a little different. 

Last season’s most improved player, Satou Sabally, will be out until after the Olympic Break due to a shoulder injury. Last season, Sabally emerged as a superstar in the WNBA, averaging 18.6 points, 5.8 rebounds, and 4.4 assists after being healthy for the first time in her career. 

The Wings’ point guard position will look a lot different this year as the team moves on from Crystal Dangerfield and Veronica Burton. Dallas announced they traded Dangerfield to the Atlanta Dream in exchange for a third-round pick and, a few days later, waived Burton. 

These changes cleared the way for rookie point guard Jacy Sheldon to step in and be the starter on day one. Sheldon averaged 17.8 points and 3.8 assists at Ohio State last year before being selected by the Wings at number five overall in the 2024 draft. 

2024’s draftees won’t be the only ones making their WNBA debut once the season tips off. Lou Lopez-Senechal will get her first professional action after missing all of the 2023 season with a knee injury. 

Lopez-Senechal will instantly step in and help the Wings three-point shooting, which was a huge weakness last season. Dallas ranked near the bottom of the league in every three-point shooting category. 

The Wings will begin their season tomorrow night as Dallas takes on Angel Reese and the Chicago Sky in front of a sold-out College Park Center Crowd.
Fans can catch all the action on Bally Sports Southwest Extra.
