Arike Ogunbowale leads Wings to most wins for a single season in team history

On Sunday, the Dallas Wings eliminated the Phoenix Mercury from playoff contention with their 77-74 win on the road. This was the Wings’ 19th win of the season, the most they’ve had in a single season since moving to Dallas in 2016.

Dallas’ Arike Ogunbowale led the team in scoring with 29 points, which included four 3-pointers. Earlier this season, Dallas head coach Latricia Trammell mentioned that Ogunbowale is the leader of the team and is ready for the challenge. With performances like this, Ogunbowale is proving her coach correct.

After the win, coach Trammell shared her thoughts on the 19-win milestone.

“The great team that I have, every one of those players in that locker room has been a major factor in some way,” said Trammell when asked how she got the team to 19 wins. “I think the buy-in, the will to win, the love for one another, the connection they have – I have to give them all the credit because they’re the ones sacrificing. These young ladies have done a lot to get us in this position.”
