WNBA Friday Night Recap: Fever, Mystics, and Mercury Pick up Ws

In last night’s WNBA action, the Indiana Fever pulled out a 66-63 win over the New York Liberty. Out east, the Washington Mystics hosted the struggling Connecticut Sun and blew them out 82-56. In the west, the San Antonio Silver Stars were no match for the Phoenix Mercury, as Phoenix picked up a 82-61 win.

Leading the way for Indiana was forward Tamika Catchings, who had 23 points, 10 rebounds, and 4 steals as the Fever rallied to a close win. Catchings’ sneaker of choice was the adidas adipure Crazyquick, a model which delivers a seamless sock-like fit thanks to techfit technology. Cushioning in the adipure Crazyquick is provided a Puremotion midsole, which mimics the natural flex and motion of an athlete’s foot. Try them today for $112.

From the Verizon Center in DC, the Mystics were led by Ivory Latta, who had 19 points, 5 assists, and 3 rebounds. Defying the traditional and conventional footwear brands, Latta has her own signature model with upstart NFinity. The IL|12t (or “illist”,) is designed specifically with women in mind. Using female-specific BioniQ technology, the IL|12t helps to break down the barriers between men’s and women’s footwear.

In Arizona, the Mercury were powered by veteran Diana Taurasi, who had 20 points, 10 assists, and 4 rebounds. Taurasi was once again spotted in her Nike LeBron X PE, a colorway which wasn’t available to the public. However, with the use of NikeiD, users can create something similar for $230.
