The Chicago Sky lost their regular-season finale to the Connecticut Sun on Sunday, but MVP front-runner Elena Delle Donne wrapped up the WNBA scoring title with a 28-point performance.
Delle Donne finished the season with a scoring average of 23.4 points per game, shooting 46 percent from the field and 31.3 percent from beyond the arc. Most impressively, she shot a scorching hot 95 percent from the free throw line on seven attempts per game. She made 207 free throws on the year, making it the sixth time in WNBA history a player has made over 200 free throws in a season.
Delle Donne played in 31 of 34 games on the season, leading the Sky to a 21-13 overall record and the No. 2 seed in the Eastern Conference. Chicago will begin the playoffs at home against the Indiana Fever on Thursday.
Finishing behind Delle Donne in the scoring race were Maya Moore (20.6 PPG) and Angel McCoughtry (20.1 PPG). Delle Donne, Moore and McCoughtry were the only three women to put up over 20 points per game on the season.
