Sylvia Fowles Sets Single-Season Rebounding Record

When you break the WNBA single-season rebounding record, you’d think most of the attention would be on you.

Well, unless it happens in the last regular-season career game of the league’s all-time winningest player.

In Minnesota’s 88-83 win to close the season against Washington on Sunday night at Target Center, Lynx center Sylvia Fowles hauled in 14 rebounds, giving her 404 rebounds for the season, one more than the single-season record that was previously held by Jonquel Jones.

Fowles has had an incredible season, averaging 17.5 points and a career-high 11.8 rebounds per game.

She led the league in both offensive and defensive rebounds in 2018.

Her 3,016 career rebounds rank fifth in league history.
