The Indiana Fever finished off the defending champion Minnesota Lynx, 3 games to 1, to win their first-ever WNBA Championship. The title was clinched with an 87-78 victory last night in Indianapolis.
Here’s some details, courtesy of the Indy Star:
The Indiana Fever did it, and they were able to win it. Tamika Catchings added the only missing element from a distinguished basketball resume: WNBA champion. Catchings had 25 points and eight assists Sunday night in becoming MVP of the WNBA Finals. The Fever completed an improbable run through the playoffs for their first championship, beating the Minnesota Lynx 87-78 to win the best-of-five series 3-1 before a crowd of 15,213 at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. The Fever became the city’s first pro basketball champions since the Indiana Pacers won the last of their three ABA titles in 1973.
