August 1, 2020 - Women's National Basketball Association (WNBA) - Indiana Fever News Release

The Indiana Fever and Atlanta Dream meet for a Sunday matinée at IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida.

Despite a record-setting 11 assists for rookie guard Julie Allemand last time out, the Fever will be looking to get back on track against Atlanta. The bench scoring aided Indiana against Dallas with forward Stephanie Mavunga also tying a career-best 10 points in relief of Natalie Achonwa, who left the game in the second quarter with a right hamstring injury.

The Dream took down New York on Friday night, 84-78, behind 30 points from Betnijah Laney on 11-of-18 shooting.

Rookie guard Chennedy Carter is averaging 15.3 points per game in her young Dream career, after being selected with the No. 4 overall pick in the 2020 WNBA Draft.


Sunday's game will be streamed live at no cost to fans at, on the Indiana Fever's Facebook page, or via the Fever app. Pat Boylan will be joined by Bria Goss and will bring you the action from Indianapolis.

The game will also be available to watch on NBA TV.
