Seattle Storm wins third WNBA title

Seattle Storm wins third WNBA title

The outcome had been decided long before Breanna Stewart allowed herself a small smile with just under a minute to go in the Seattle Storm's 98-82 triumph Wednesday, the win that completed a sweep of the Washington Mystics and crowned Stewart's Storm team WNBA champions. It was a rare show of emotion from a normally reserved Bird, and the 14 points she dropped in the fourth, including four threes, to send the Storm to the Finals set social media ablaze. Howard was right behind her, dropping a double-double 29 points and 14 rebounds in the win, shooting 11-of-14 from the field. "The difference between really good teams at this level, can be if you're able to get production from places that you don't normally expect". We feel like we've got a lot of young, great talent, and obviously this isn't how we wanted it to end, but it's an experience that we can grow from. While players haven't been shy about standing up for themselves, they've gotten some help from their National Basketball Association counterparts this year, which is enormous given the men's game's meteoric rise both at home and overseas over the last half decade. With Capital One Arena unavailable, the Mystics played their semifinal home games at the Smith Center on the George Washington University campus. "We knew what we had to do to actually win a title and that's what we did". "To do it with this group, the way we did it, I don't even know how to react".

"There's been a huge transformation with the culture of this team", said Delle Donne, who was acquired by Washington before the 2017 season.

"We had a goal for this year".

South Carolina Coast Ordered To Evacuate Ahead Of Hurricane Florence
Forecasters said Florence was expected to become an extremely risky major hurricane sometime Monday, and remain that way for days. It's looking like Cape Cod will be spared from a direct hit of a major hurricane this week, according to the latest forecasts.

She cited now knowing Toliver's favorite beer, getting to know the families and pets of her teammates, playing games like 'would you rather?' while waiting in airports. "I am really happy for her".

Seattle, already sacred in 2004 and 2010, is the successor to Minnesota, eliminated in the first round of the playoffs by the Los Angeles Sparks, which are themselves fallen in the next round to face Washington. Hughes knows that the Mystics likely won't go 0-for-16 again on 3-pointers like they did in Game 2.

The victory takes the Storm to an unassailable 3-0 lead in the best-of-five WNBA Finals. In the end, the Storm, who dominated the regular season, proved to be the league's best team. Stewart was 4-for-5 from behind the arc.

Bolton To Set Out Tough U.S. Stance On International Criminal Court
Bolton said the announcement about ending all involvement with and support for the ICC put the USA stance in the "public record". The US signed the Rome Treaty that established the International Criminal Court in 2002 but never ratified it.

"Each (championship) is special in its own way, but this one is probably going to have a different meaning for me", the 37-year-old veteran point guard said.

Stewart was named the WNBA MVP ahead of the playoffs after averaging 21.8 points, 8.4 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 1.4 blocks.

The party's not over for the Storm and the fans who want to continue celebrating their big win. "I don't know if it was putting us seventh or eighth, I can't remember, and our team took a look at that and said, hell, no".

Sweden's ruling party hits election low as far-right grows
Lengthy negotiations will be needed to build a majority, or at least a minority that won't be toppled by the opposite side. Around 18.5 per cent of Sweden's population of 10 million was born overseas , according to Statistics Sweden.
