Wings center Liz Cambage set a new WNBA record with 53 points in Dallas’ 87-104 win over the Liberty on Tuesday.
In just 37 minutes, Cambage, 26, connected on a hyper-efficient 17-22 field goals, including 4-5 from downtown.
She added 10 boards and 5 blocks to complete the historic statline.
The 6-8 center broke the previous record of 51 points set by Riquna Williams during the 2013 season—when the Wings were the Tulsa Shock.

After the game, Cambage said, “I’ve had big numbers in China. I’ve had big numbers in Australia. I’ve had a lot of people say I could never have big numbers here in the WNBA.”
She continued: “So I guess this game was for y’all.”
