Wnba Pleased With Attendance

By Compiled From Wire Services

The WNBA averaged crowds of 10,369 for its first 16 games, the league said.

The high point was the largest attendance for a women’s professional game - a crowd of 17,780 on Sunday for the New York Liberty’s home opener at Madison Square Garden against the Phoenix Mercury.

“We are off to an outstanding start with early crowd levels well beyond our original expectations,” WNBA president Val Ackerman said. “Although we do not anticipate sustaining these levels throughout the season, it is clear than an audience exists for women’s professional basketball.”
