Indianapolis, Ind., — The Indiana Fever prepare for their 2018 campaign in tomorrow’s WNBA preseason matchup against the Chicago Sky.
Gearing up for the leagues 22nd season, the Fever will host the Sky in one of their two preseason games. Tip-off is set for 12:30 PM ET in Bankers Life Fieldhouse.
Indiana who posted a 9-25 overall record last season underwent big change as they picked up some key players to bring size, youth, and athleticism to the roster. With the loss of guard Briann January (Phoenix), four-year pro Erica Wheeler returns as the likely starter after a solid 2017 season. Also returning are veterans Candice Dupree and Erlana Larkins. Newcomers Kelsey Mitchell, Stephanie Mavunga, and Victoria Vivians were a steal in this years draft class adding scoring prowess, size, and depth to the Fever. With 18 players on the training camp roster, fans and spectators eagerly await to see the final 12-man roster when the squad opens the season on May 19.
The Sky made their preseason debut against the Atlanta Dream Sunday, falling 78-61. Cheyenne Parker paced Chicago with 13 points and eight rebounds followed by Stefanie Dolson’s 10 points.
