Pregame Notes


What does that spell? You got it....BENCH MOB. They are the backbone of the Mystics team that holds them all together. A solid well-rounded team is what will keep the wins coming and build up on the strength needed to go all the way. The Mystics bench are the glue that awaits for the moment to keep it all together.

Washington has the power to utilize their reserve players even in huge moments such as Aerial Powers who’s come in big for the Mystics starting in place of Kristi Toliver as well as Emma Meesseman who has proved to be a solid sixth-woman. When your number is called up you have to always be ready and Washington has shown that.
