The 2017 Women’s Final Four weekend was a blast for the Dallas Wings team, as the region hosted the best players in college basketball.
On Thursday, Assistant Coach Taj McWilliams-Franklin participated in a Beyond the Baseline: Women in Leadership panel as she discussed her playing and coaching career alongside other sports professionals. Later that evening, at the WPBA Lady Legends Celebrity Basketball game, Aerial Powers performed the tipoff for the game while McWilliams-Franklin played a strong game for her team during the two 20-minute halves. The Wings in-game DJ Poizon Ivy provided the entertainment as the celebrities and former players wowed the crowd.
The Wings team took over Tourney Town on Friday as Aerial, Tiffany Bias and Skylar Diggins gave a Q&A to a packed crowd at Capital One Center Court, followed by a fast and furious celebrity shoot out. The media, entertainment and sports figures sunk plenty of shots to the music of DJ Poizon Ivy, with Team Skylar ultimately winning the game. Fans got the chance to get up close and personal with the players afterward at the autograph session while snapping pictures and shaking hands.
Throughout the weekend, the Dallas Wings front office team table at Tourney Town attracted women’s basketball fans from across the country who spun the wheel for a chance to win Wings swag, including two tickets to the team’s home opener on May 20.
