If the Dream go deep in the WNBA playoffs, players like Sancho Lyttle and Erika de Souza won't have much rest as the 2009-10 season of the Liga Feminina - the Spanish women's professional basketball leaguge - begins on October 10, 2009.
The full schedule is here.
Erika de Souza's Ros Casares club opens at home against Hondarribia and Sancho Lyttle starts her season with Perfumerias against Argon. Arminitie Price played for Joventut last season, and if she stays with the Spanish League she'll play against Real Canoe. (Argon and Real Canoe are "promoted" teams from Division 2 of the 2008-09 season.)
The final playoff takes place on April 24-28-May 1st of 2010. If the 2010 WNBA season opens in May 2010, that's not a lot of time to rest if either Ros Casares or Perfumerias goes deep...and both are expected to contend for the title.
