The Chicago Sky will open their first home game of the season on Friday, June 10.

The Miami Heat and Dallas Mavericks come one step closer to closing out the season on Thursday in Game 5 of the NBA finals. Their tied up series is a boon for fans. But for those with a passion for basketball that knows no bounds, fear not.  The WNBA season is just getting started.

In recent years Chicago’s WNBA team The Sky has come close to the playoffs. Their first home game is Friday, June 10.

To find out what to expect this season Eight Forty-Eight was joined by Patricia Babcock McGraw.
