Sky guard Courtney Vandersloot makes All-WNBA second team originally appeared on NBC Sports Chicago
Chicago Sky point guard Courtney Vandersloot was named to the All-WNBA second team on Friday.
For five consecutive seasons, Vandersloot led the league in assists (8.6) while also averaging 10.5 points per game in the regular season. This is the third time she was named to the second team.
Vandersloot had an impressive Game 2 against the Phoenix Mercury in the WNBA Finals on Wednesday night.
She led the charge with 20 points, 14 assists and even had a running layup to tie the game with 4.4 seconds left. The Sky came up short in overtime and took their first loss in the final.
“It is not time to panic, because they have beaten us,” Vandersloot told the media after the loss of the OT. “I think we were at least excited or happy with the idea that we had a chance to win that game.
The Sky takes on the Mercury at home for the first time in this series in a sold-out Wintrust Arena when they play Game 3 on Friday night.
“We are excited to come back and have home field advantage,” said Vandersloot. “It’s kind of the atmosphere you dream of as a kid. Playing the WNBA final in front of a sold-out arena. I think that says all there is to say about it. Now we’re just going to come out and enjoy every moment and try a show for our fans.”
