CHICAGO — WNBA legend Sylvia Fowles stole the show in the first half of the 2022 All-Star Game when she took a breakaway opportunity, much to the delight of a packed crowd at Wintrust Arena.
Fowles – who spent the beginning of her career with Chicago Sky before joining the Minnesota Lynx in 2015, with whom she won two championships – was hugged by her teammates on Team Wilson, who defeated Team Stewart 134-112.
Fowles now has a dunk in the first and last All-Star games of her career. The predecessor came in 2009.
Fowles and fellow soon-to-be retired Sue Bird were co-captains and starters in their eighth and 13th All-Star appearances, respectively, and were honored for their contributions to the sport during the game.
Four-time Defensive Player of the Year and 2017 League MVP Fowles got the scoring going with the opening points of the game, a 3-pointer. Fowles, the WNBA’s all-time top rebounder, had only attempted a three-pointer to get into the game in her WNBA career.
She finished with 7 points, 9 rebounds, 6 assists, 3 steals and 1 block.
