New York is coming off back-to-back 20-plus win seasons and WNBA Playoff berths. Tina Charles returns to lead the Liberty on the court, after submitting one of the greatest individual campaigns in WNBA history last year. In 2016 she led the league in scoring (21.5 ppg) and rebounding (9.9 rpg), earning All-WNBA 1st Team honors while coming in 2nd in the league MVP balloting, in addition to winning an Olympic gold medal with Team USA at the Summer Olympic games in Rio.
Head Coach Bill Laimbeer opens his 5th season on the sidelines in New York. Last year, Laimbeer became just the 7th coach in league history to surpass 200-career victories, and since the start of the 2015 season, has guided the Liberty to a 44-24 (.647) overall record.
Once again this season, the top eight teams in the league in terms of overall record, regardless of conference affiliation, will qualify for the WNBA playoffs, with the teams with the best two records receiving a bye into the best-of-five league semifinals.
For a 2nd-straight season, New York will play one home preseason game at Columbia University’s Levien Gymnasium, hosting the Connecticut Sun on Sunday, May 7, at 3 PM. The contest is open exclusively for Liberty season ticket holders, who will be treated to an up-close and personal view of the Liberty as they put the finishing touches on preparation for the new season.
