Tina Charles received two WNBA Peak Performer awards for leading the league in scoring and rebounding during the regular season. Despite multiple Eastern Conference Player of the Week and Player of the Month honors, she was not named league MVP. That honor went to Nneka Ogwumike of the Los Angeles Sparks. Charles has not yet announced where she will play this offseason. Neither have Shavonte Zellous, Shoni Schimmel and Kiah Stokes.

Newly retired Swin Cash was the only Liberty player in attendance at last week’s WNBA Inspiring Women Luncheon. The honorees were Karen A. Peterson, Dawn Martesi and Rosa Rios, the 43rd treasurer of the United States, who showed off an enlarged prototype of the upcoming Harriet Tubman $20 bill, which debuts in 2020. Players in attendance reflected on their political statements this year in support of Black Lives Matter.

“At the end of all of it, I’m super proud to be a part of this league,” said Briann January of the Indiana Fever. “We sparked those conversations that needed to be had. … We want to do what’s right. Hoping we can keep it relevant and make change.”
