WNBA to allow coaches challenge next season

November 10, 2022

The WNBA will allow coaches to challenge one play a game next season, and the league is also heightening the penalty for transition take fouls.

The league announced the changes on Thursday. The league’s competition committee recommended the rules changes and the WNBA Board of Governors approved them.

Both rules, which will go into effect next season, are already used in the NBA.

Coaches will be able to challenge one time per game, regardless of whether the challenge is successful. The team can use its challenge to get an instant replay review of a foul called on its own team, an out-of-bounds violation or a goaltending call. AP
