In just her third year in the league, WNBA MVP candidate Sophia Young led the San Antonio Silver Stars to the best record in the league and home-court advantage throughout the playoffs, which begin tonight.
Young finished the regular season averaging 17.5 points (a new career high) and 5.6 rebounds per game, and the former Baylor All-American ranks among the league’s top 10 in points and steals.
She is joined in the WNBA by one other fellow Baylor alum: Bernice Mosby, a forward for the Washington Mystics. The pair join the growing list of former Baylor athletes in professional ranks in other sports like baseball and football.
Sic ’em in the playoffs, Sophia!
