Wings Rise Over Fever 89 – 64 

Indianapolis, Indiana – The Dallas Wings (7-8) took flight over the Indiana Fever (1-15), 89 – 64, in Indianapolis Thursday night. This was Dallas’s largest margin of victory this season.

The Wings were led by second-year forward Satou Sabally, who netted a team-high 15 points and grabbed a team-high nine rebounds. She was joined in both efforts by frontcourt teammate Charli Collier, who scored a career-high 12 points to go along with her seven boards.

Dallas also had four other players reach double figures, as Arike Ogunbowale (10), Allisha Gray (13), Isabelle Harrison (10) and Marina Mabrey (14) all found the bottom of the net consistently. It is the first time since June 30, 2019, the Wings have had six players in double figures. It was also the second time this season Dallas has never trailed in a game.

The Wings next return home to welcome the Washington Mystics for the first time this season. Tip-off is set for 12 p.m. CT.
