Former Notre Dame guard Jewell Loyd already is having her best season ever with the Seattle Storm. Plus, she seemingly is pushing herself to new heights every game. The latest example came in the Storm’s 93-86 loss to the Washington Mystics. Despite the defeat, Loyd did everything she could in scoring 39 points and tying the WNBA single-game record with nine 3-pointers:
Loyd had a chance to break the record at the final buzzer, but her shot went off the rim. The way the All-Star and former top overall pick has been playing, don’t be surprised if she has another chance to break that record this season. For now, she’ll have to be content with matching the mark set by the Indiana Fever’s Kelsey Mitchell in 2019.
As well as Loyd as played, it hasn’t be enough to prevent a six-game losing streak for the Storm that has made them tie for the league’s worst record with Brianna turner’s Phoenix Mercury. All she can do is continue to play well. At least Storm fans can look forward to that.
