  • Team Wilson 134 – Team Stewart 112

Highlights:  As going-out parties go, it was a great one. Sylvia Fowles and Sue Bird received roaring ovations with 2:10 to go at the 2022 WNBA All-Star Game at Wintrust Arena on Sunday. It was the pair’s final midseason showcase as both have announced their retirement. Fowles, who started her career in Chicago, brought the house down with a first-half dunk and earned a win with Team Wilson, led by A’ja Wilson. They defeated Team Stewart, captained by Breanna Stewart, 134-112. It was a record total for Wilson’s squad in an All-Star game. The previous high was 130 set by the West in 2009 and 2017. The game itself ballooned to a 20-point differential at the half in favor of Team Wilson and they kept a sizeable lead down the stretch. Kelsey Plum was named All-Star MVP. She tied the All-Star Game record for points with 30, shooting 12-of-18 and driving to the basket early.
