It’s impossible to determine which assists are more important than the other, though on Sunday, the choice was easy for Layshia Clarendon.
The former Cal Bear, now with the Atlanta Dream as well as an analyst for the Pac-12 Network, dished out 10 assists on Sunday in a 77-70 loss to the Washington Mystics, though it was her seventh that she will remember most. That assist broke the single-season record for the Dream. Clarendon chipped in 11 points in the loss.
It has been a big month for Clarendon, who earlier in the week was a subject of a New York Times feature headlined “The Next Great Point Guard? Layshia Clarendon Makes Her Case.” She also became a first-time WNBA all-star.
If her record-breaking becomes a habit, there is little doubt she could be.
