Big Syl, POW!

Sylvia Fowles was named the Eastern Conference “Player of the Week!!!”

From Sky Writings…

Sky Fans, join us in congratulating the Chicago Sky’s Sylvia Fowles for being named the WNBA’s Eastern Conference Player of the Week presented by Kia Motors for her regular season games played at Atlanta June 4th and home against Tulsa June 5th.

For Fowles, the Player of the Week award is the first of her career. The honor came after she led the league in points, 25.5, and blocks, 2.5 per game, while also averaging 11.0 rebounds (third best), 1.5 steals and 1.0 assist per game in leading the Sky to a pair of wins. With an 80-70 victory over the Eastern Conference-leading Dream in Atlanta and a 95-70 defeat of the visiting Tulsa Shock the Sky lifted its record to 4-4. For the season, Fowles leads the league in blocks (2.5 per game), ranks fifth in scoring (19.9 PPG) and eighth in rebounds (8.5 RBG).

A dominating effort in Chicago’s win over Tulsa included a career-high 32 points, 13 boards, four blocks and a steal. The point total was only the third time a Sky player reached the 30-point mark and the first time in regulation. One day earlier, the LSU product poured in 19 points, grabbed nine rebounds and recorded two assists, two steals and a block to help drop the Eastern Conference leaders.

Congrats, Big Syl!
