NY Liberty home opener vs Indiana Fever
May 21, 2023: NY Liberty players celebrate against the Indiana Fever.

Listen: Lessons Learned from Liberty Loss to Aces, All-Star Selections and More on the ‘Gotta Get Up’ Podcast

The Liberty had another winning week as the WNBA inches closer to the All-Star break.

Standing at 11-4, New York has the second-best record in the league. The only team ahead of them? The 15-1 Las Vegas Aces. The two superteams met on Thursday night, and Vegas dominated en route to a 98-81 victory. That loss was the only blemish in a 2-1 road trip for New York, which included a gritty win over the Connecticut Sun and a wire-to-wire dub over the Seattle Storm.

On the latest edition of the ‘Gotta Get Up!’ podcast, Erica Ayala of Black Rosie Media and I discussed:

  • Lessons the Liberty can take from their loss to the Aces
  • What they did right in wins over the Sun and Storm
  • All-Star nominations for Sabrina Ionescu and Courtney Vandersloot
  • Other WNBA All-Star reserves
  • Defense, connectivity and how the Liberty can continue to get better
  • The Liberty’s chances of making it to the Commissioner’s Cup Finals
  • Marine Johannes’ role coming off the bench and how best to utilize her
