Atlanta Dream off to promising start in WNBA -- SUNDAY CARDINAL COUPLE
ANGEL, DREAM FINDING SUCCESS
The Atlanta Dream are off to a great start in the WNBA Eastern Division with a 6-1 start. Only once in their history have they started as well...back in 2013 when they burst out of the gate with a 10-1 start.
Leading the way is Angel McCoughtry, the greatest to even don a UofL WBB uniform. Her 19.3 ppg leads the Dream in scoring. She's getting major assistance from Tiffany Hayes at 16.7 ppg and a torrid 58.1% from the floor.
Angel's also about to diversify into a business opportunity. Follow @mccoughtrys_icecream on Instagram as she shares the start up. Being a complete fool for ice cream, this is wonderful news to me...I hope she's successful and opens a Louisville location.
I like a couple of the old fashioned ice cream spots here in Louisville...and both aren't too far from the UofL campus. Dairy Kastle and Dairy Del have been favorites for years and I'm pretty sure a lot of UofL students and alumni would agree. The Dairy Kastle also does a really good chili dog and it's a guilty pleasure to drop by and consume a couple every months or so.
Anyway, back to Angel...they face the Washington Mystics today. It's a 3 p.m. tip in Atlanta and is scheduled to be shown on Fox Sports Southeast. The Dream has played well in recent history against the Mystics...winning the last four and nine out of the last eleven.
Checking on our other Cardinal WBB star in the WNBA...Shoni Schimmel...she's still seeing reserve duty with the (3-3) New York Liberty. The last time out, she saw about five minutes in a rout over the Indiana Fever. She was 2-2 from beyond the arc.
Here's a link to her long range bombing skills:
Have you noticed she's wearing #5 now? Seems a bit strange not seeing her the #23 jersey.
Good luck to both Angel and Shoni as the season rolls on. Once a Card, always a Card.
