Led by Finals MVP Katie Smith (21.7 ppg, 6.7 rpg, 3.3 apg) the Detroit Shock won their 3rd WNBA Championship by sweeping the San Antonio Silver Stars 3-0. Former UConn Husky Kelly Schumacher (who was signed during the Olympic break) wins her 2nd straight WNBA Championship ring after winning her first last season with the Phoenix Mercury (who didn't re-sign her). Schuey played a major role of the defensive end (16.7 mpg, 5 rpg, 1 bpg) for the Shock during these Finals and deserves a lot of credit for coming up big after hardly getting of the bench during the first two rounds (9.0 mpg, 2.3 rpg, no blocks) of the playoffs.
