1Chamique Holdsclaw Wins WNBA Scoring Title
Chamique Holdsclaw made WNBA history in 2002 by becoming the first player to lead the league in both scoring and rebounding. Chamique also led the Washington Mystics to their best ever regular season and helped the team win their opening playoff game against the Charlotte Sting.
