NEW YORK – Breanna Stewart now can add the WNBA’s top-selling jersey to a year that already includes an NCAA championship and an Olympic gold medal.
The league announced Thursday that Stewart’s jersey and merchandise of her Seattle Storm top the WNBA in sales.
Stewart says it shows the support she has received in the WNBA and hopes the league benefits too.
Olympic gold medalists held seven of the top 10 spots based on WNBAstore.com sales: Elena Delle Donne third, Maya Moore fourth, Brittney Griner sixth, Diana Taurasi eighth, Sue Bird ninth and Tamika Catchings 10th. Skylar Diggins was second followed by Shoni Schimmel at fifth and Candace Parker seventh.
The WNBA ends its Olympic break Friday. Stewart and the Storm visit Minnesota on Sunday night followed by the Sparks at Phoenix.
