Keys for Mystics heading into Game 2

Tuesday night, the Minnesota Lynx put on a shooting clinic, drowning the visiting Washington Mystics with wet jumpers en route to a convincing 101-81 victory in Game 1 of the WNBA semifinals. There wasn’t much to cheer about for Mystics fans, especially after the second quarter. An exasperated Mike Thibault evaluated his group’s performance after the game. “We got bombarded,” Thibault...

Jones grabs a career-high 22 rebounds in win over Mystics

Connecticut Sun (21-12) All-Star center Jonquel Jones proved that she’s the WNBA’s leading rebounder on Tuesday, collecting a career-high 22 boards in an 86-76 win over the home Mystics (17-15). It was a matchup that featured the second and third best rebounding teams in the league, which despite Jones’ gaudy numbers, held true. The Sun narrowly won the advantage on the... Read More

Mystics wrap up preseason with loss to the Lynx

Preseason. That’s the best way to sum this one up, neither team looked particularly sharp from the opening whistle. That was to be expected coming in, each team’s biggest star sat this one out as well. There was no Elena Delle Donne or Maya Moore on the floor for their respective teams. While the preseason may not have been shorter... Read More

Walker-Kimbrough headlines Washington’s draft class

While that trade brought someone in, it meant several players were leaving. Two left in the trade for EDD, Stefanie Dolson and Kahleah Copper. In a second trade to create both cap space and roster space, the Mystics sent Kia... Read More

Walker-Kimbrough gets hot from deep in win over Illinois

  Slow Starts. Yet again, the second ranked Maryland Terrapins fell victim to one of their biggest issues. The Fighting Illini of Illinois did a great job of muddying the game up early as both teams were shooting 30’s percentage wise midway through the first quarter. For a team like Maryland, playing slow is out of character for them and... Read More

It won’t be long before Elena Delle Donne is the best in the WNBA

Though there are many worthy candidates, I consider Candace Parker to be the best player in the WNBA. She has the varied skill set and the athletic ability to create a comfortable distance between herself and the competition. But the growing talent in the WNBA today begs the question: Which player will be the one to take CP3’s spot as best... Read More
