After conquering the New York Liberty 93-80 last night, The Dallas Wings (1-1) battle the Indiana Fever Friday night at 6 p.m. CT on CBS Sports Network. Arike Ogunbowale led the Wings in scoring, a phrase you’ll most likely read a lot this year, and was aided by four other Dallas players in double-figures on the scoring line.
Ogunbowale’s 20 points gives her 15 straight game of 15 points or more and 17 consecutive double-figure scoring games. It also marks the fourteenth game in her last 16 that the former Notre Dame star has eclipsed 20 or more. Wings newcomer Katie Lou Samuelson set a career-high mark with 12 points while paying a career-high 19 minutes and Moriah Jefferson eclipsed double-digit scoring figures for the first time since Aug. 11, 2018 after contributing 13 points.
Dallas is averaging 94.0 points a game so far, second best in the WNBA’s young 2020 season, and the Wings have totaled 90 or more points in its first two games for the first time in franchise history. Prior to this year, eight other teams have also accomplished this feat in the history of the WNBA and only one of those teams failed to make the playoffs.
