Indiana Fever vs. Chicago Sky

leave a comment »

Tonight was opening night and the first game of the season for the Indiana Fever. The first team they played against is the Chicago Sky. This year the Fever had many more people attend their opening game than the opening game in 2009.

The game –> Throughout the whole game the Fever maintained the lead, until the 4th quarter when they nearly lost it and dropped to only a 3 point lead. They managed to keep the lead and eventually win with a score of 65-57. During the game there were many jump balls and steals from the Fever that kept the game exciting.

Stats–> Katie Douglas scored a total of 19 points for the team, and Tangela Smith scored another 16.

New players–> With the new players this year, the 2011 season is looking like a promising season. With former Phoenix Mercury player Tangela Smith and the talent she brings, Smith is a good addition to the Fever. Another new member is Erin Phillips from Australia. Phillips has played pro basketball for 3 years. The newest member to the team is Jeanette Pohlen from Stanford. This is Pohlen’s first Pro season.

This should be an exciting and amazing season, and I am super excited to see the players play their best. Fever games are certainly a great time for families of all ages and I cannot wait to go to the next game.

The next Fever game is on Friday, June 10th @ 7:00, against the New York Liberty.
