    They are going to lean on her so much more this season considering she will be the only starter from last season's Championship team on the floor.

    Watched the Liberty vs Wings tonight. Joyner did not get much playing time as Dallas basically ran NY out of the gym. When Joyner was in, the NY Coach was running a nonsensical “5 out-none in” offense, 4 players standing around the 3-pt line with Ionescu handling at the top of the key. A Liberty player would take a shot from distance, Dallas would get an uncontested rebound.

    Is there a can’t miss post player in her final year of eligibility that the NY coach is tanking for just 2 games into the season?

    Joyner finished with 7 points (3/4, 1/1 FT) and 4 rebounds in 10 minutes.

    The Mystics (Ariel) take on the Storm tonight at 5:00 on ESPN.

    Ariel was sharp on her 24th birthday - 22 points (5/10 from 3).

    Is Brooke McCarty still on the Wings?

    She took the season off to have the baby. With Moriah Jefferson finally back to full strength and their selection of Ty Harris in the first round, the Wings released her and she’s officially a free agent.

    When she was signed, they said Sug would be available for Wednesday’s game if everything was okay - she might get a few minutes and the game will be televised on CBSSN at 6:00 PM.

    Sug got 9.5 minutes and was pretty solid. Ended up with 4 points, her first bucket came on a pass from Ariel...

    Ariel and Sug are squaring off against Joyner on NBA TV/WNBA app.

    Thought this game tipped off at 12:00 CT - it was Eastern so they are almost through the 1st quarter.
