The Angel McCoughtry and the Atlanta Dream open their season tomorrow night at Philips Arena against, rookie, Skylar Diggins and the Tulsa Shock at 7 p.m. The Dream return four starters from last year’s team that finished 19-15 and reached the WNBA playoffs for a fourth consecutive season. Tulsa finished 9-25 a year ago, but has optimism for the upcoming season with a revamped roster.
Atlanta’s returning starters are led by Angel McCoughtry, who won her first league scoring title last season averaging 21.4 points per game. For the fifth year in a row, the Dream frontcourt will include former All-Stars Sancho Lyttle and Erika de Souza, and Armintie Herrington returns on the wing for the Dream. Second-year standouts Tiffany Hayes and Aneika Henry return as well. SportSouth will be carrying the game if you can’t make it in person. GO DREAM!
