Sky’s Angel Reese welcomes physical play when Sun come to Chicago


Star rookie Angel Reese of Chicago learned how physical the WNBA can be when the Sky faced Connecticut last month. That physicality could again be on display as the Sun eye another 2024 win at Chicago on Wednesday night. The Sky (4-6) played the Sun (10-1) tough on May 25, but the visitors prevailed 86-62.

Sun, Mystics on opposite sides of history ahead of rematch


The Connecticut Sun and the Washington Mystics are both off to historic starts in 2024, but for different reasons. Connecticut is 8-0 for the first time in franchise history, while Washington’s 0-8 start is tied for its worst ever. The Sun, though, are downplaying their torrid start entering Tuesday’s Commissioner’s Cup clash against the Mystics in Uncasville, Conn. “We don’t care about the record,” forward Alyssa Thomas said. “It’s a 40-game season — it’s a

Dream chemistry to get major test from Sun


If there is one thing the Atlanta Dream are still working on in this early part of the WNBA season, it’s forging that connection that will carry them to a successful year. “Chemistry. We are still working through chemistry,” Atlanta coach Tanisha Wright said. “We’re trying to figure out one another and how we want to play and communicate to each other defensively. That just takes time.” The Dream (4-2) are playing well as of
