The Mystics got the deficit back to five points, but a trademark Whitcomb steal was followed by a three pointer and Seattle had the buffer they needed.

Geno Auriemma wouldn't miss this for the world.

The University of CT women's basketball coach sat next to his long-time assistant Chris Daley watching the most decorated player they'd ever coach do what she always does - win.

Breanna Stewart led the Seattle Storm to their WNBA title Wednesday night, scoring 30 points in a 98-82 victory over the Washington Mystics in Game 3 of the best-of-five series.

"I've seen that before", Auriemma added.

Stewart was expected to lift a once-proud franchise from the doldrums and deliver a championship.

"This is probably one of the best things that has ever happened to me", said Stewart, who averaged 25.7 points in the Finals. And her experience with the Fever and the Lynx in previous WNBA Finals showed in how well she played throughout this year for the Storm.

"We had a goal for this year. And we just continued to play for each other". Stewart drained all four of her three-point attempts in the first half to build Seattle's insurmountable lead.

"That's the Breanna Stewart I remember", Auriemma said. "The way she realized that opportunity, and what she did, and how she blended with this basketball team". "I know she made me a better coach".

Elena Delle Donne scored 23 points for the Mystics.

"I mean, Stewie and I joke, I don't know if I should even say this, but at the start of the season we lost to Phoenix at home, and we were like, oh, crap, what kind of year is this going to be, because it didn't - we hadn't clicked yet", Bird said.

It completed a sweep for the Storm, who know they couldn't have done it without the 6-foot-2 post player. "I'm going to need a lot tonight". "We don't feel like we peaked and this is it for us", Delle Donne said. Kristi Toliver had 22 points.

Head Coach Dan Hughes is celebrating his first league title after previously leading two other WNBA teams to the playoffs.
