2017 WNBA National TV Schedule

ESPN will tip off its 16-game regular-season schedule of the 2017 WNBA season Saturday, May 13, at 5 p.m. ET when the defending champion Los Angeles Sparks — led by reigning league MVP Nneka Ogwumike — host the Seattle Storm and 2016 Rookie of the Year Breanna Stewart. Ryan Ruocco will return as the lead play-by-play voice alongside analyst Rebecca Lobo and reporter Holly Rowe. Also this year, ESPN will again televise each game of the WNBA postseason from the first round to the Finals.

ESPN’s slate of games will feature two rematches of last year’s WNBA Finals between the Sparks and the Minnesota Lynx (July 6 and August 27), and will also include seven games each for the Sparks and the Lynx, led by four-time WNBA All-Star Maya Moore. There will be three games showcasing Stewart and the Storm, as well as three appearances by 2015 WNBA MVP Elena Delle Donne and her new team, the Washington Mystics. The New York Liberty and Tina Charles, along with the Dallas Wings and Skylar Diggins, will also be highlighted three times in the schedule.
