She won four national championships with the Huskies, Olympic gold in 2016, and world championship gold in 2014 - all on teams coached by Geno Auriemma.

The Seattle Storm clinched the 2018 WNBA championship on Wednesday, completing the sweep of the Washington Mystics with a 98-82 victory.

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 top-seeded Storm led Phoenix 2-0 in the semifinals and then dropped two straight road games before winning Game 5 in Seattle.

The ultra-confident, steely cool Stewart had a feeling about this game, just as she had a feeling about this series and this season.

Tierra Ruffin-Pratt sank a 3-pointer with 6:49 left to cut Seattle's 16-point lead at the start of the fourth to five (72-67) and inject a little suspense in a game the Storm controlled for three quarters.

When Storm coach Dan Hughes was hired after last season he told Bird that he hoped he could get her one more. "I've seen her as a youngster, and I have seen her with the Storm, and she really is truly awesome".

The championship was Seattle's third in WNBA history. All of this was new, and yet, all of it felt like it had happened before, even to Stewart. "There is probably no comparison to be honest". Players were selected by position and received five points for each First Team vote and three points for each Second Team vote. Our team went through a rebuild and yes, I made a decision to stay. But at 37, the question seems to always linger for the league's oldest player - how much longer will we get to see her do things like this?

The coach sensed something brewing early in his first year with the franchise.

It was also reported that Mystics star Elena Delle Donne was a guest on the next episode of LeBron's HBO show 'The Shop.' Kristi Toliver had 22 points. You know, it's been a great season for our organization, for our players, and we had a lot of growth. Seattle obliterated Washington and became the sixth team to sweep the Finals in three games.

Some teams on the wrong end of championship results will say the season was a failure because the goal was to win it.

"I think Natasha Howard is the biggest difference between [the Storm] last year and this year on the court". Bird said. "That's when I knew it was over". "Those are huge. Those are huge because not only is she going to score, she's going to distribute well". In turn, they've forced Seattle to turn the ball over a combined 25 times so far and forced 15 turnovers in game two alone. Poor perimeter shooting contributed.
