MTHS alum, athlete serves on Seattle Storm coaching staff

Storm forward Breanna Stewart is all smiles during warmups before the Seattle Storm take on the Washington Mystics for game two of the WNBA Finals at Key Arena in Seattle Sunday

Breanna Stewart led all scorers with 30 points as the Seattle Storm topped the Washington Mystics 98-82 in Game 3 of the WNBA Finals Wednesday night to capture the third championship in franchise history. Seattle obliterated Washington and became the sixth team to sweep the Finals in three games.

The answer came almost four months later with a championship.

"I gotta say, as exciting as it is to have the Storm making playoff noise - I'm anxious that everyone's not on the same page". "I've seen her as a youngster, and I have seen her with the Storm, and she really is truly fantastic". "She helped to relieve the pressure off me".

Breanna Stewart won four NCAA championships at UConn and won four Final Four MVP awards.

What Stewart has done the seven years since is no surprise to her. "The way she realized that opportunity, and what she did, and how she blended with this basketball team".

"Obviously each is special in its own way, but this one is probably going to have - I don't know, just a different meaning for me because so many reasons that we already know, right, like I didn't know if I'd even be playing at this point", she said. The three-point play sparked Seattle to pull away. "She has yet to let any of us down".

President Donald Trump both touted the government's readiness and urged people to get out of the way. "Don't play games with it". Boarding up his home in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, Chris Pennington watched the forecasts and tried to decide when to leave.

Hurricane Florence: 10 million at risk as first shelter declared FULL
Port of Wilmington, North Carolina , extended operating hours for trains and trucks to clear cargo containers from the complex. Below is a list of services being offered in Florida to evacuees, as well as information for those fleeing Florence.

Man arrested after breakfast with woman in Saudi Arabia
The man's arrest comes after the Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman's bid to modernize the Gulf kindgom, Time Magazine reported . At one point the woman - who can not be identified as her face is covered by a niqab - feeds the man a piece of food.

Stewart, who was named the WNBA MVP earlier this season, ranked second in the WNBA in scoring, averaging 21.8 points per game, and was third in rebounding with 8.4 rebounds per game. Perhaps more than anyone, she is soaking in all the celebration "because you can never re-create that", she said. The others are Cynthia Cooper, Sheryl Swoopes, Tamika Catchings, and Brittney Griner.

"Sometimes teams focus so much on Stewie and that allows Tosh to take advantage", Clark said. The pair are joined by Liz Cambage of the Dallas Wings, Diana Taurasi of the Phoenix Mercury and Tiffany Hayes of the Atlanta Dream to round out the team. Rightfully so, the team's 3-0 sweep of the Washington Mystics in the Finals caught the attention of National Basketball Association stars such LeBron James and Kobe Bryant, among others.

And unlike the semifinals, Seattle seeks to bring a sense of urgency into Game 3.

The two All-Stars on the team, Delle Donne and Toliver, had a cute moment at the podium minutes after their season ended when discussing the budding chemistry the team has had over the past two years when the pieces first came together.

Voting for the All-WNBA First and Second Teams was conducted at the conclusion of the regular season. Nine days later the UConn senior forward arrived in France as one of 16 finalists for the 12-player roster that will take part in the FIBA World Cup Sept. 22-30 in Tenerife, Spain.

KT: "I'm going to need a lot tonight".
