Wings fly too close to Sun, fall to Connecticut

The Dallas Wings (14-11) played their fourth game in six days when they welcomed the Connecticut Sun (13-12) to the College Park Center in Arlington.

Unfortunately for Dallas, the Wings were unable to take a 15th team win into the All Star break after falling, 92-75 to the Sun in Arlington.

It was a crowded but pleasant atmosphere at the College Park Center where the Wings, along with artist Kirk Franklin hosted Faith and Family day highlighted by a post-game concert from the Walls Group.

Wings center Liz Cambage saw a fair share of double teams early in the contest but still posted a double-double in the loss. Cambage finished with 25 points, 10 rebounds and 5 assists.

Three players tallied double-digit point totals for Dallas and the Wings shot 23.8 percent from three on 21 attempts. Contrastingly, the Sun shot 50 percent from three on 20 shots and finished with five players in double figures. Shekinna Striklen led all Connecticut players with 24 points in the win.

Dallas returns to action following the All-Star break by hosting the Chicago Sky at 7 p.m. on July 31st.

At least two Wings players will be participating during the All-Star festivities as Cambage and teammate Skylar Diggins-Smith were both voted to the WNBA’s All-Star Game.
