The Dallas Wings have made the playoffs.

After nearly eight years in North Texas, the Dallas Wings have a good chance of making the playoffs.

Why it matters: For years, many of the local men's teams have been disappointments, while the Wings will participate in the WNBA playoffs for the third year in a succession.

This is their greatest season since coming to North Texas in 2016.

The squad now has the fourth-best record in the league and the second-best in the Western Conference, trailing only the 2022 champion Las Vegas Aces.

The Wings have two games remaining in the regular season, but they have already clinched a playoff position. 

The Wings' playoff performance will most likely be determined by Arike Ogunbowale, Natasha Howard, and Satou Sabally, who have emerged as league stars to watch.

Yes, but the Wings don't have much bench depth if any of those three players is forced to sit out, according to D Magazine.

Top-seeded Las Vegas and New York are also difficult to beat.

Back in 1998, the Wings were known as the Detroit Shock, and they won the WNBA championship in 2003, 2006, and 2008.

The Shock spent six seasons in Tulsa before relocating to Arlington and renaming themselves the Dallas Wings for the 2016 season.
