Liz Cambage scored 53 points to set a WNBA record overnight, leading the Dallas Wings to a 104-87 victory over the New York Liberty.
The 2.03m tall star broke American Riquna Williams’ WNBA record of 51 points, set in 2013, on an open three-pointer from the top of the key.
“It’s pretty big,” Cambage said.
“I’ve had big numbers in China, I’ve had big numbers in Australia, and I’ve heard a lot of people say I could never have big numbers here in the WNBA. So I guess this game is for y’all.”
Cambage, who helped lead Australia to a gold medal at Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games in April, outscored the Liberty’s entire starting five by 10 points.
