March is prime time for championship basketball, and you’ll find more of it today at the West Seattle High School gym. Three games on Friday evening tipped off the National Wheelchair Basketball Association Women’s Championship Tournament; 13 games are scheduled today, starting at 8 am. Eight teams are here for the tournament, including the defending champs, the Denver Lady Rolling Nuggets:


That’s #12 Christina Schwab with the ball. Denver was playing the Seattle Storm in one of yesterday’s openers, while another game featured the Milwaukee Lady Bucks vs. the NWSRA Lady Hawks:


For Milwaukee, that’s #4 Mareike Miller with the ball.

The WSHS gym is partitioned into three courts for the tournament; the 8 am games are Milwaukee vs. the PossAbilities Shield Maidens, the Dallas Lady Mavericks vs. Seattle, and Denver vs. the University of Arizona; subsequent games are at 9:45, 11:30, and then two semifinals at each tipoff time of 1:15 pm and 3 pm. Sunday’s schedule has three consolation games at 9 am and the championship game at 11. No admission charge to drop in and watch any or all of the games, which are co-sponsored by Seattle Adaptive Sports; WSHS is at 3000 California SW.

    Headline says video.  I don’t see a video.  Is there a video, (pc-win 7).

    DSA, the vid shows for me (W10/Chrome) right under the date/time stamp bar.

    Thanks for the response, but I have no date stamp bar.  A few seconds of video was on the TV though.  I wanted to see how often they have to dribble.

      It’s Twitter video, but not the first time we have used that platform to embed video.

Sorry, comment time is over.
