Sunday Night Entertainment

The last time these two teams played was on Sunday, and it was an entertaining nail-biter. The Wings edged out the Sparks by one point, winning 84-83. After a back-and-forth first quarter, the Wings pulled ahead and led the game for most of the second and third quarters. Then, in the fourth quarter, the Sparks came back, briefly taking a lead with four minutes left in the game, but eventually falling to Dallas.

The Wings were led by Arike Ogunbowale who had 20 points but shot poorly, going 7-of-30 from the field and scoreless from three (eight attempts). Monique Billings’s 18-point 12-rebound double was also key to the Wing’s success. Each player in the Dallas starting lineup put up double-digit scoring efforts.

Although the Sparks lost, there is reason for excitement in Los Angeles. Sunday’s game marked a huge night for rookie Cameron Brink, who scored her career-high 21 points in 24 minutes of playing time (she had early foul trouble). She also chipped in three blocks and went 3-of-6 from long distance. Dearica Hamby chipped in with 19 points and 13 rebounds in the loss.
