Angel McCoughtry scored a game-high 35 points, but it wasn't enough as the Seattle Storm finished a sweep of the Atlanta Dream with an 87-84 victory in game three of the WNBA Finals Thursday night.
Despite the bitter ending it was an amazing run for McCoughtry, the league's Rookie of the Year a season ago. She averaged just under 30 points a contest in the playoffs and netted a WNBA playoff record 42 in the clinching game of the Eastern Conference Finals against New York.
It took McCoughtry just two seasons to take the Dream from the worst team in the league to one step short of being on top of it. She's like a more successful LeBron.
Seriously though, in a couple of years the best female basketball player in the world might very well be a former Louisville Cardinal. Pretty cool.
Congrats to Angel on a tremendous year and an unreal postseason.
