Perkins Named Player of the Week
In the Sky's 92-84 double-overtime victory over the Sacramento Monarchs on July 29, Jia Perkins had one of the most remarkable nights in WNBA history. Jia scored 39 points, setting a new franchise record for points in a game, surpassing Candice Dupree's previous record of 31 points. Her 39 points are the most scored by a single player in a WNBA game this season, and 8th on the WNBA all-time list. She became the first player in WNBA history with 30+ points and 10+ assists in a single game. Her 17 made field goals ties the league record shared by Lauren Jackson and Diana Taurasi. Perkins' terrific performance earned her Eastern Conference Player of the Week honors. Click here to read more.
