The GIST: It’s been a wild few days in women’s sports, with the start of the NWSL and WNBA seasons, and the UEFA Women’s Champions League (UWCL) final. Here are a few of our favorite highlights from the past weekend:
🏀WNBA: In just her fourth professional game, New York Liberty’s Sabrina Ionescu (pronounced yo-NESC-ooo) with about two seconds remaining to win the W’s season opener. The Liberty went on to beat the Indiana Fever again yesterday, already tying their total games won from last season. Do a 180.
⚽️UWCL: Barcelona put on a show in a dominating 4–0 victory over Chelsea to win their first-ever title. They could’ve stopped after the first three goals — which included — but from Caroline Graham Hansen was just too good.
