Seattle Storm fans can celebrate a WNBA title with a new t-shirt

The Storm stayed true to their mantra to never look back and always focus on the next game. "I thought we're going to win and then we didn't".

The answer came almost four months later with a championship.

"She's victor, what else can I say", Auriemma said, smiling broadly as Breanna Stewart strolled around EagleBank Arena after the Storm's 98-82 win clutching the WNBA trophy in one hand and the Finals MVP award in the other.

In addition to Stewie's impressive stats, forward Natasha Howard hit a career-high 29 points and 14 rebounds.

Breanna Stewart led the Storm with 30 points and 8 rebounds in Game 3 of the best-of-5 series.

The Storm clinched the third decisive victory in the hall of Mystics, on the score of 98 to 82.

Hughes says credits his willingness to listen to life, and his wife, for taking on the Storm head coach role.

In 2004, she partnered with Lauren Jackson and Finals MVP Betty Lennox for an unexpected Finals win. "I know she made me a better coach".

The three-time WNBL All-Star with the Perth Lynx is now a WNBA champion after making her American league debut for the Storm at age 28 last season.

Justin Bieber & Hailey Baldwin Reportedly Got Married!
Baldwin herself hinted she was planning on waiting and slammed critics who think she is too young to get married . As for rumors the couple rushed to get married because she's expecting, they aren't true.

And now it is Bird and Stewart and Loyd and Howard and more, a new championship cast is Seattle. Kristi Toliver had 20 points.

"There is probably no comparison to be honest". Case in point: can you imagine planned construction on Capital One Arena during either the National Basketball Association or NHL postseason, forcing the Wizards or Caps to play elsewhere? "I'm just so thankful that we were both playing in Russian Federation at the time and that we just met because we connected instantly, and that's been my person that I go to about everything in my life. I'm going to tell you what, they were special in November, January, and when we started April 29th, and they're special tonight".

The coach sensed something brewing early in his first year with the franchise. Whether in the wins at Smith Center or the loss Wednesday night at Eagle Bank Arena, those have provided the kind of home court advantage that every team and fan base wishes for.

"Here we are 15 years later, can you believe it?" he said to her as the two laughed and shared a quick embrace.

With Mystics star Elena Delle Donne appearing to get stronger with each passing day, the Storm can't afford to give away any games. "[Turnovers have] just stopped us from getting into the flow we want to get into". "This is a great arena, could be electric in here if we fill it up".

"We don't feel like we peaked and this is it for us", Delle Donne said.

Stewart was expected to lift a once-proud franchise from the doldrums and deliver a championship, but her first two years in the WNBA ended with disappointing first-round playoff exits on teams that were the No. 8 seed.

Perhaps opposing teams are being more careful defending Delle Donne, because when she does get to the line, she's automatic.

Check out the brand new t-shirt - which honors the Storm's previous titles and their current roster - below. I didn't know (Toliver's' favorite) beer.
