Washington Mystics superstar Elena Delle Donne made history and became the first WNBA player to shoot at least 50 percent from the field, 40 percent from behind the arc and 90 percent from the free-throw line.

But in the process, EDD cemented her already MVP-worthy resume this season by becoming the only player in WNBA history to record a 50/40/90 season. The Washington Mystics, who were swept in the Finals last season, earned the No. 1 overall seed and will have a bye to the semifinals and home-court advantage all the way.

The Sky (20-14) will now be the No. 5 seed and will have to play a single-elimination first-round game - Wednesday at home against No. 8 seed Phoenix.

Chicago's Courtney Vandersloot had six assists to become the first player in league history to reach 300 in a season, which she did exactly, and the first player to average at least nine assists a game for a season (9.1).
