Minnesota’s Brunson makes WNBA rebounding history

Rebekkah Bruson is no stranger to making history in the WNBA. Last year, she helped the Minnesota Lynx win the championship, which was the franchises’ fourth all time, but individually, it was Brunson’s fifth. She now is the only player in league history to have collected five championship rings.

Thursday night, she made even more history as she became the WNBA’s All-Time leading rebounder. Entering Minnesota’s game against the Los Angeles Sparks, Brunson was second on the list behind Tamika Catchings.

However, hungry to help the Lynx capture its first win over the Sparks in the season, Brunson went to work on the glass as she pulled down 14 rebounds – pushing her past Catchings on the league’s all-time rebounding list.

Brunson now sits at 3,317 all-time rebounds…there’s still plenty of season, who knows how many rebounds she will pull down by the conclusion of this season, or when she decides to retire from the game.

“Congratulations to Rebekkah Brunson on becoming the WNBA’s all-time leader in rebounds,” stated the WNBA’s president Lisa Borders. “A relentless pursuit of excellence has defined Rebekkah’s 15-year career and made her a beloved teammate and one of the most respected players in our game.  Passing the great Tamika Catchings is a tremendous accomplishment – one of many for a WNBA legend.”

On top of Brunson making history, her Lynx also took home the win 83-72 over Los Angeles.
