Metro Canada (Calgary) - - THE NEW FARM - THE AS­SO­CI­ATED PRESS

Diana Taurasi of the Phoenix Mer­cury be­came the WNBA’s ca­reer scorer leader, pass­ing Tina Thompson’s mark of 7,488 on Sun­day against Los An­ge­les.

Taurasi needed 14 points com­ing into the game, and broke Thompson’s record late in the first half on a layup with the Phoenix Mer­cury trail­ing big. The game was stopped and the crowd, which in­cluded for­mer Lak­ers star Kobe Bryant, gave Taurasi an ova­tion.
