COACHING MATCHUP OF ORIGINAL WNBA PLAYERS

When Seattle head coach Jenny Boucek and San Antonio head coach Vickie Johnson meet on Sunday at KeyArena, it will be a 20-year reunion of sorts. Both women were players in the WNBA’s inaugural season in 1997. Boucek played for the now-defunct Cleveland Rockers, while Johnson was a member of the New York Liberty. Both coaches also excelled as collegiate players. Boucek was a four-time ACC champion at the University of Virginia. She helped the Cavaliers to three Elite Eight appearances. Johnson had a legendary career at Louisiana Tech, during which she led the team to the 1994 NCAA championship game and was named to two All-America teams.

FORMER HUSKY STANDOUTS TAKE CENTER STAGE

Sunday marks the first time former University of Washington standout Kelsey Plum will hit the hardwood in Seattle as a professional player. Of course, she’s no stranger to playing basketball in the city. Plum averaged 25.4 points per game during her career as a Husky and holds the all-time record for points (3,527) scored in NCAA Division I women’s basketball, as well as the record for most points in a season, set in 2016-17. Plum won’t be the only former Husky in the building on Sunday. Sami Whitcomb, Seattle’s sharp-shooting guard, attended the school from 2006-10. She averaged 10.6 points per game for her career, and her 1,205 career points ranks 20th in program history.

CLASH OF FORMER COLLEGE TEAMMATES

While Plum and Whitcomb both represent UW, they were never on the same college team. This contest does, however, feature two matchups of former college teammates: Jewell Loyd and Kayla McBride (Notre Dame), and Breanna Stewart and Moriah Jefferson (Connecticut). All four players were on the court in the 2014 NCAA championship game, as well as a 2013 Final Four game. In their two seasons as backcourt teammates, Loyd and McBride averaged a combined 32.4 points per game and led the school to back-to-back Final Four appearances. Loyd and McBride rank fifth and sixth, respectively, in career points at Notre Dame. Stewart and Jefferson played their entire careers together at UConn, going 151-5 over four seasons and winning four national championships.

DOMINATING THE STARS SINCE 2008

Seattle owns a 15-3 record at home against San Antonio dating back to the 2008 season. Its 22-11 all-time home record against the Stars is Seattle’s second best against any opponent whom it has hosted at least 30 times. In its last eight home games with San Antonio, the Storm has averaged 71.7 points per game. Seattle’s five most recent home victories over the Stars have come by an average of 9.8 points.
