Natasha Cloud recorded the first triple-double in Athletes Unlimited history on Saturday night, notching 17 points, ten rebounds and ten assists. It was also the first triple-double of the Washington Mystic guard’s career.

The Team Cloud captain’s historic performance, however, wasn’t enough to hold off Team Harrison, who shot 50 percent from the floor to win 85-79.

Odyssey Sims led the charge for Team Harrison with 32 points and eight rebounds, while Courtney Williams added her second double-double of the season with 16 points and 12 rebounds. Isabelle Harrison contributed 18 points in the win.

Trailing by 16 points late in the game, Team Cloud went on a 14-3 run and put the pressure on Team Harrison down the stretch, but it wasn’t enough to pull off the vicotry.

“Regardless of the loss, I’m really proud of our team for coming back from a really frustrating game last night and coming out there and competing today,” Cloud said after the game.

With the victory, Team Harrison improves to 3-0 in Week 3.

Harrison and Cloud will both return as Week 4 captains. Harrison moved into second place in on the Athletes Unlimited leaderboard with 3,761 total points, while Cloud sits 371 points behind her in third. Both players trail AU leader Tianna Hawkins, who has 4,298 points.
