Mystics forward Crystal Langhorne missed the first game of her three-year career, and the Mystics sorely missed her presence as they fell to the defending WNBA champion Seattle Storm 73-63 on Sunday at Verizon Center.
The Mystics followed a well-traveled road in their game against Connecticut on Thursday night, falling behind early and mounting a comeback that fell short. Through a combination of unforced turnovers and offensive struggles, Washington trailed by as many as 17 in the first half en route to losing 79-71 at Verizon Center, in its second straight defeat.
The Washington Mystics will open their season on the road Saturday against the Connecticut Sun with a roster that includes four rookies.
The Mystics' frontcourt got a makeover Monday, as Washington drafted one young post player and acquired another in a trade later in the day.
"We have to make sure everybody's talking, that there's energy coming from the bench, and that we keep encouraging our teammates on the court. You just try to find something positive in every game, even in a loss," Dunlap said.
"As a team, we have to come out strong, start with our defense, and make sure we're getting stops. That will really help us make better offensive plays, and get better shots," Dunlap said.
