The Scouting Report
As the 2014 season hit its midway point, the Liberty began to find their stride. Since June 22, the team has compiled a 5–3 record, including a pair of victories over the East’s top-ranked Atlanta Dream and a trio of losses merely to lull the rest of the league into a false sense of security. While their offense still has room to improve, the Liberty have excelled defensively behind a roster of veritable glass-eaters, whose 35.1 rebounds per game is third in the entire Association. They’ll look to keep the momentum going in a pair of games against Eastern Conference rivals Connecticut and Washington.
New York Liberty
Now in its 18th season, the WNBA is led by a slate of premier athletes whose elite-level performance continues the league’s impressive legacy. This season, the New York Liberty is led by head coach Bill Laimbeer, formerly of the Detroit Pistons, and recently-signed 2012 WNBA MVP and Queens native Tina Charles join all-star Cappie Pondexter and the rest of the squad. As the athletes face off, a bounty of fan entertainment keeps crowds energized, including Maddie, the Liberty’s furry mascot. Elevating the family-friendly atmosphere of the games is the Lil’ Torches, a team of dancers aged 14 and younger, and the 40-and-older dance team known as the Timeless Torches, which was recently featured in the sixth season of 30 Rock.
