Dream drops home game to Monarchs

Add this share

The Sacramento Monarchs dropped the Atlanta Dream 79-66 today, providing a note-so-nice welcome back to Philips Arena. The game marked the first Dream home game since July 5, when the expansion franchise recorded its first-ever win.

The storyline was different today, with the Monarchs outscoring the Dream 22-13 in the first quarter and never looking back. Their lead at times ballooned to 17 points.

“Rest is very critical,” Dream coach Marynell Meadors says. “It was challenging after coming off a six-game road trip. We will continue to work hard and work on some other things and do a better job in the game on Friday.”

The Dream schedule includes two home games before the WNBA’s extended break for the Olympics – Friday at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday at 3 p.m.
