Dream announce 2017 schedule


The Atlanta Dream open their 10th season in their new venue on May 21, when they host the Chicago Sky at McCamish Pavilion on the Georgia Tech campus.

The team is coming off a 17-17 season that saw the Dream advance to the second round of the WNBA playoffs. The Dream will play all home games at McCamish in 2017 and 2018 while renovation are underway at Philips Arena.

After opening the season with road games at Connecticut on May 13 and at Chicago on May 9, they face the Sky again two days later at home. The Sky eliminated the Dream from the postseason last season.

Other highlights of the 34-game schedule: the Dream host the WNBA champion Los Angeles Sparks on May 27 and June 30; the Minnesota Lynx, along with former Collins Hill High School and Connecticut star Maya Moore, appear the McCamish on July 28 and Aug. 8.

The season concludes Sept. 3 with a game at Phoenix.
