Breanna Stewart has been named the WNBA’s 2018 MVP, the league announced Sunday.
It’s the first MVP honor for the Seattle Storm forward, who earned 33 of 39 first-place votes from a national panel of sportswriters and broadcasters.
Dallas Wings center Liz Cambage finished in second place with four first-place votes and Washington Mystics forward Elena Delle Donne rounded out the top three with two first-place votes.
Stewart helped the Storm earn a 26-8 record and the top seed in the 2018 WNBA Playoffs. Seattle is slated to face off against the Mercury in the semifinals in a best-of-five matchup.
The 23-year-old, who won the 2016 Rookie of the Year, averaged 21.8 points, 8.4 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 1.4 blocks this season.
She was the top overall pick in the 2016 WNBA Draft out of UConn.
