Breanna Stewart is a Champion, Again
Breanna Stewart went off for 30 points on Wednesday to lead the Seattle Storm to a WNBA championship, earning finals MVP honors to go along with her regular season league-MVP award.
Stewart and the Storm completed a three-game sweep of the Washington Mystics, 98-82, on Wednesday. It was the third title in franchise history for the Storm, and first for Stewart.
'Stewie' as she's called by teammates, is now 24 and has won, actually dominated, the female-basketball world at every level. She won a Class AA state title while at Cicero North-Syracuse high school, was a four-time NCAA national champion with UCONN (and was named Most Outstanding Player in each of the four NCAA Tournaments), earned gold at the Olympics in Rio with Team USA and now raises her first WNBA Championship.
The 6-foot-4 Stewart, whose wingspan extends beyond 7-feet, averaged 24.6 points in the playoffs after posting nearly 22 ppg in the regular season.
