LOUDONVILLE, N.Y. - The WNBA's New York Liberty will host the Chinese Women's National Team in a special exhibition on Friday, May 27th at 7 p.m. at the Times Union Center. A portion of the proceeds will go to Siena Women's Basketball as the program looks to raise funds for its European trip this summer.
"We are thrilled to welcome both the Chinese National Team and New York Liberty to the Capital District," said head coach Gina Castelli. "This is a wonderful opportunity for our community to watch the highest level of women's basketball players in action as well as support the Siena Women's Basketball program. I look forward to seeing everyone there."
Former Los Angeles Sparks President, WNBA Executive and Siena Women's Basketball player Kristin Bernert '96 was instrumental in orchestrating the event with both the Liberty and Times Union Center.
Tickets for the game are only $20 to see some of the best players in the world compete. A portion of the proceeds from each ticket purchased directly through the Siena Women's Basketball program will go towards the Saints' fundraising efforts for the cost of their summer trip. The team will be traveling and playing games in both Denmark and Italy in August.
