The 20-game schedule for this year’s WNBA season on Twitter has been released. Between this, the CBS Sports Network announcement, and the slate of games on ESPN and ABC, W hoops will certainly take an uptick in accessibility this year.
All 12 teams will be featured at least twice via Twitter with games being accessible via the WNBA’s Twitter account.
Led by A’ja Wilson, the Las Vegas Aces will get six appearances via Twitter – with all six being home contests. The Atlanta Dream, who came within a game (and an Angel McCoughtry injury, perhaps) of making the WNBA Finals last year, will also get six appearances. The defending champion Seattle Storm will be featured on four occasions – twice at home and twice on the road.
Elena Delle Donne’s Washington Mystics – new arena and all – will be featured on four occasions. With Chiney Ogwumike now on the same team with her older sister Nneka, as well as Candace Parker, Chelsea Gray, Alana Beard and Kalani Brown, the Los Angeles Sparks will be seen on Twitter on three occasions. The Phoenix Mercury, Connecticut Sun, Chicago Sky, New York Liberty, Minnesota Lynx, Dallas Wings, and Indiana Fever all get two appearances each.
