New York Liberty superstar Breanna Stewart has been named WNBA MVP. Stewart beat out the Connecticut Sun’s Alyssa Thomas and Las Vegas Aces star and reigning MVP A’Ja Wilson in the closest race in W history.
Stewart and Thomas were separated by seven points, and 13 points separated the winner from Wilson.
“A tight MVP race is amazing for this league because that means multiple players are being talked about that can do a lot of different things,” Stewart said.
Stewart would then play in a bounce-back win for the Liberty over the Sun to tie the semi-final series at 1-1. Stewart had 11 points, 11 rebounds, 5 assists and 5 rebounds.
