Preseason games begin today at 1 p.m. ET when Chicago and Minnesota meet at Concordia University in St. Paul, Minnesota. Last year during the Lynx’s out of town preseason game at the College of St. Benedict in St. Joseph, there were no updates until the game was over except for a few fans tweeting observations and scores. The Indiana Fever beat the Lynx 68-51. After a year of social media madness, today should be a different story as WNBA teams have Twitter and Facebook accounts.
The rest of the preseason schedule:
The WNBA compiled a training camp gallery of photos from around the league.
