It’s tough to find positives from a losing streak like the Dallas Wings’ current one

On Sunday afternoon, the Wings lost their 11th game in a row at the hands of the Washington Mystics, who had only won two games all year before beating Dallas on back-to-back days this weekend. 

The training room door has been revolving throughout this losing streak. With many Wings regulars sidelined, more minutes have opened up for young players to show Head Coach Latricia Trammell what they can do. 

Rookie Point Guard Jacy Sheldon has taken those extended minutes and ran with them. Sheldon has played 20 or more minutes in each of the Wing’s last five games.

Sheldon has averaged 10 points, 3 assists, and 3.6 rebounds during the span. 

“I’m honored and blessed to coach this young lady,” Wings head coach Latricia Trammell said when speaking about Jacy Sheldon last week.

“Talk about speaking life into people; she’s a perfect example of it. I could coach Jacy the rest of my career.” 

Sheldon is just trying to chip in any way she can and help the Wings get out of this rough stretch. 

“I think it’s just contributing any way I can to help this team,” Sheldon said.

“It’s about all of us, not any individual; I think just being able to go out there and continue to learn how to play with these girls learn, but I think now it’s just finding ways to win.”

The Wings do need to start finding ways to win, as Dallas has slipped down to last in the WNBA standings with a 3-13 record. 

Dallas will get a lot better when their injury reinforcements come back, but there becomes a point when the hole they’ve dug is just too big. The Wings sit 11 games out of first place in the WNBA but just three games out of a playoff spot. 

Catlin Clark and the Indiana Fever currently hold the final playoff spot with a 7-11 record after winning five of their last seven games. 

Dallas returns to the College Park Center on Thursday afternoon when they take on the Minnesota Lynx for the Wings annual camp game.
Tip-off is scheduled for noon in Dallas’ lone home game before they hit the road again on Saturday to take on the Seattle Storm.
