Congrats to the Shock!

The Shock defeated the San Antonio Silver Stars 76-60 earlier this afternoon, earning the sweep and picking up their third title in six years:

Detroit swept the league’s best regular-season team, winning the clincher at Eastern Michigan University’s Convocation Center, a venue forced upon them because of a scheduling conflict.

For Smith, the Finals MVP, the win meant a league championship less than two months after she and her U.S. teammates took gold in Beijing.

"Everybody battles on this team," she said.

Smith was lifted from the game with time running out as coach Bill Laimbeer emptied his bench to the ear-splitting delight of the crowd.
