Tina Thompson scores 7,000th point

The Storm defeated the Sky, 75-60 last night. But the real story was that Seattle forward Tina Thompson – the lone player from the WNBA’s first season in 1997 – crossed the 7,000-point mark for her career.

It is an amazing achievement, and one that surpasses all female pro basketball players.

In other action last night, the Silver Stars stepped on the gas in the last period to beat the Liberty, 77-66.
