Mystics Score Home Opening Win!

What better way to start off the home season than on a winning note.

The Washington Mystics win big over rival New York Liberty in a 77-61 victory.

Langhorne is the newest milk-drinking athlete to join the National Milk Mustache got milk?”® campaign and don the famous Milk Mustache. She joins other basketball elite all-stars such as Diana Taurasi, Chauncey Billups and Deron Williams, and tammate who all know that what they eat and drink can make a difference in their performance and their bodies.
