WNBA Commissioner Cathy Engelbert: It’s more than just a weight room
The WNBA commissioner speaks out on the NCAA weight room and what it represents.
The Seattle Storm are officially your 2020 WNBA Champions.
After starting the season as the overwhelming favorites to win it all, the Storm lived up to the hype, steamrolling the Las Vegas Aces 92-59 to complete the three-game sweep on Tuesday. The Storm were 6-0 in the playoffs, and outside of a two-point win in their first game against the Minnesota Lynx in the semis, they won every game by double digits.
Relive the top moments from the Finals below.
Breanna Stewart becomes the first player to drop 35 and 15 in a Finals game, and Sue Bird dishes a playoff-record 16 assists.
