WNBA Players Scoring/Rebounding/Assists Milestones for the 2018 season

A new WNBA season is upon us. There’s so much to look forward too, but for these following WNBA players, it will be even more special as they can cross certain milestones and move themselves up in the WNBA lists. As always, my inspiration for this comes from Kevin Brown’s WNBA site where you can find all of these information and much more. I also used Across the Timeline’s website in which they detailed all of the upcoming WNBA players milestones.  I only cover the three main categories and will update every single time via my Twitter when a player is near a certain milestone just like I have in previous years. *Note: I only put WNBA players who I think are capable of reaching the milestone THIS season ONLY.*

The Canadian Women Senior National Team – Road to the FIBA Women’s Basketball World Cup

Canadian Senior National Team

*Note: The Canadian Senior Women National Team is in action at the FIBA Women’s Basketball World Cup taking place from September 22nd to September 30th. This is just part 1 of the previews of the team and a new preview will be posted monthly.

 

Toronto – The Canadian Senior Women’s National Team has a higher set of expectations coming into competition. They will be expected to fight for a medal and show the other countries that they are becoming one of the basketball powerhouses. The women’s team over the years have had great finishes and close games, but other than that, have not finished higher than third over 32 years ago in major international competitions such as the World Championships and the Summer Olympics.

The talent level has risen over the years and this current team is ranked 6th in the world by FIBA. This shows that the Canadian team is starting to make noise but in order to truly arrive, Canada needs to show it can be a medal threat along with the top countries that are participating.

Team Canada’s roster will be a mix of young players and veterans who must be ready to play against some of the top players in the world. It is not an easy task to put a team together and have a high set of expectations but this team needs to prove itself. Their recent history in other competitions shows that they can indeed be a medal threat, but on the world stage and more eyes watching, they will need to impress.

Team Canada’s competition will be tough but with the right mix of skill, defense, team play and chemistry they can be a force to be reckoned with come September.

 

 

My WNBA coverage and what to expect this season

Hey everyone!

It’s been a while since my last blog post so I thought I would just quickly update all of my readers and subscribers (thank you!!) on what they can expect from me this WNBA season. I am going to be writing articles with a major focus on the Dallas Wings and the Atlanta Dream at http://www.hashtagbasketball.com/wnba. I will still watch the WNBA and other teams but if you follow those two teams closely, I will be too.

As for the blog, I will still post every two weeks to keep up with the latest WNBA information and or other interesting tidbits. I have a very busy summer ahead of me, but that does not mean the WNBA season stops. I may be absent here or there throughout the summer due to some personal family commitments so apologies if I miss certain days or if I don’t post articles, etc.

Thank you everyone for always reading this blog. I appreciate your support and I hope you continue to support during the WNBA season!
