There is a lot that goes on behind the scenes of a WNBA team, there are countless practice sessions and each one featuring different themes for the team to help them prepare for whoever they are facing next.
For the Washington Mystics who have a 17-11 record, each practice is essential to the team who are looking to improve on different parts of the game. Some days the ladies focus on the defensive side of the court, other days communication and overall the sessions are great for team bonding.
