With a spot in the playoffs still possible for Dallas, the Wings (7-14) lineup against the New York Liberty (2-19) at 11 a.m. CT on the CBS Sports Network tomorrow, September 12, in the finale of the 2020 WNBA regular season.
It is the second time the two rookie-laden teams have clashed this season, with Dallas getting the better of the Liberty in the first matchup, a 93-80 victory, the largest winning margin for the Wings this season. The Wings’ attack features the WNBA’s leading scorer, Arike Ogunbowale, who dropped 38 points the last time Dallas was on the court. The Notre Dame alumna scored 20 against the Liberty in the first game the teams played to lead Dallas scorers. Ogunbowale has had four games of 30 or more this season, the most of any player in the league, and has 14 games of 20 or more in the Wubble.
Ogunbowale joins elite company with Cynthia Cooper, Diana Taurasi and Maya Moore as the only players to average at least 22 points, 2.5 rebounds and 3 assists per game for an entire season. She is also one of only three players (Cooper and Seimone Augustus) to be a top three scorer through a player’s first two seasons in the league.
