Cunningham has been leaving her mark on the WNBA since she was the Mercury’s second-round pick of the 2019 draft. The Missouri native is averaging 7.6 points and 1.3 assists per game in 156 career games and is shooting 35.8% from 3-point range.

In the 2021 and 2022 seasons, she shot at least 40% from 3-point range, adding another crucial element to the veteran team that features Diana Taurasi, Brittney Griner and Kaleah Copper.

Cunningham had five assists and two rebounds in Sunday’s win over the Storm.

She’s averaging 7.9 points per game so far this season.

Entering Tuesday, Phoenix was 7-7 and in the middle of the WNBA standings. The team was two games in back of the Storm in the win column.
