The Chicago Sky fell to the Minnesota Lynx 86-83 on Wednesday night, but it proved to be a record breaking night for one of the Sky greats. Following a 23 point performance, Allie Quigley officially became the franchise’s all-time leading scorer with 2,939 points during her time in a Sky uniform.
Quigley passed former teammate Sylvia Fowles who previously held the record at 2,927 points. Quigley holds over 3,000 career points in the WNBA.
The Chicago Sky sit at 11-7 on the season and have clinched a playoff birth for the second consecutive year. A playoff birth went from a goal just a season ago, to an expectation in 2020. Allie Quigley plays a vital role in any Sky success. The veteran guard is one of the most experienced players in the league. During her 12 seasons, Quigley has averaged 10.6 points, 1.8 assists while shooting the ball 45.6 percent from the field.
Quigley was originally drafted as the No. 22 overall pick in the 2008 WNBA Draft by the Seattle Storm. She bounced around the league in the early years trying to find her place in the league with stops with the Phoenix Mercury before landing in her hometown Chicago, Illinois. Her relentless approach to the game and growth as a player has landed Quigley thee WNBA All-Star nods, two Sixth Woman of the Year Awards and she has been named a two-time WNBA Three-Point Shootout Champion.
