The New York Liberty did not take the floor for the national anthem at its season opener Friday, according to reports.
Instead, the team stayed in the tunnel, off-court, while the song played in the Barclays Center — as did the away team, the Indiana Fever.
A rep for the Liberty didn’t immediately return a request for comment.
The Liberty edged out the Fever that night, 90-87. They’ll play again on Sunday in Indianapolis.
