Laney, a first-time WNBA All-Star, came off the bench in Team WNBA’s 93-85 win over USA Women’s Basketball Team. Over 16:48 minutes, Betnijah recorded four points, two assists and one rebound in the victory.
Whitcomb, the WNBA’s leading three-point shooter, totaled 26 points, and placed third in her first-ever WNBA MTN DEW 3-Point Contest. Chicago Sky’s Allie Quigley won this year’s contest for the third time in her career.
