Storm All-Star Lauren Jackson was named the Western Conference's Player of the Week today. Chicago Sky forward Candice Dupree was honored for the Eastern Conference.
Jackson averaged 22 points and six rebounds, shooting 49 percent from the field, as the Storm went 2-1. Jackson also recorded her third 30-point game of the season in a win Friday against Houston. It's her eighth POW in her seven-year career. That's cool, but tucked in this one is one of the Storm's worst games ever - the 28-point loss in Indiana. Jackson has led her team to conquer friend/enemies Tina Thompson and Diana Taurasi. But Fever forward Sheri Sam and Tully Bevilaqua? Not a chance. That four-point fourth quarter that ties a WNBA all-time low will never be forgotten.
