DALAS (CBSDFW.COM) – The WNBA Dallas Wings is entering its seventh season in North Texas.
They have no problem admitting that they draw inspiration from the Dallas Mavs ’charming playoff series.
The Wings not only believe it could be the year of their first WNBA title, but also that they should play an important role in the community.
For each tee Arika Ogunbavale this season $ 800 will go to help provide sunlight for ships in the city that need it. This is a collaboration with Red Bull.
In addition, the team hopes that one of their other WNBA players, former Baylor champion Britney Greener, will return home safely. She has been in a Russian prison since February.
Dallas Wings head coach Vicki Johnson once coached Greener on the U.S. team. Wings forward Isabel Harrison played with Greener at Phoenix in 2016. Together, like all of us, they wish Brittany Greener a safe return.
The Dallas Wings, like the other 11 WNBA teams, have Greener’s initials and number 42 on their home turf – the College Park Center UTA – as a tribute to her battle for a return to the United States.
