Daily Briefing — May 10, 2022: Aces-Mystics renews
Fever, Lynx battle to avoid 0-3
It’s Tuesday. Welcome to The Next’s Daily Briefing, featuring the daily Watch List. Day four of the WNBA is actually here, unlike yesterday, when I said it was Day Four despite there not being any games. The Next deeply regrets the error. But on this glorious Day Four, we have a renewal of the most cursed rivalry in the WNBA: Aces-Mystics! Las Vegas travels to Washington in a matchup of the two hottest teams in the league, both having raced past their first two opponents behind strong play on both ends. With Elena Delle Donne off the injury list, this should be a great one.
The only downside is that, for some reason, you have to navigate over to facebook dot com to watch it.
Win an autographed WNBA card!
During the month of November, new subscribers to The Next will be entered to win a signed trading card from six-time WNBA All-Star Skylar Diggins-Smith of the Phoenix Mercury.
