Phoenix Mercury guard Diana Taurasi set the WNBA’s all-time scoring record on Sunday in a game against the Los Angeles Sparks, passing Tina Thompson’s previous all-time best mark.
Taurasi, 35, broke Thompson’s record of 7,488 career points in the first half of her team’s 90–59 loss to the Sparks on Sunday. She finished the contest with 19 points to bring her career total to 7,494.
It took Taurasi just 13 seasons to become the league’s all-time leading scorer, while it took Thompson 17 seasons to accumulate the previous record.
NBA legends Kobe Bryant and LeBron James were among the most vocal men’s professional basketball players to congratulate Taurasi on her feat.
