Cambage scores WNBA-record 53 points for Wings over Liberty

ARLINGTON, TX - JULY 17: Elizabeth Cambage #8 of the Dallas Wings walks off the court after breaking the WNBA record for most points in a single game against the New York Liberty on July 17, 2018 at College Park Center in Arlington, Texas.

DALLAS (AP) Elizabeth Cambage scored 53 points to set a WNBA record Tuesday, leading the Dallas Wings to a 104-87 victory over the New York Liberty.

The 6-foot-8 Australian reached 50 points on a three-point play with 2:19 remaining and broke Riquna Williams' WNBA record of 51 points, set Sept. 8, 2013, on an open 3-pointer from the top of the key.

"It's pretty big," Cambage said. "I've had big numbers in China, I've had big numbers in Australia, and I've heard a lot of people say I could never have big numbers here in the WNBA. So I guess this game is for y'all."
