OVERVIEW

Following nearly eight seasons with the Mystics between 2007-2014, Monique Currie returned home to Washington for her 13th season in the league. Currie, a D.C. native, joined the team last spring in an effort to fill a void created by the Emma Meesseman’s departure. Currie, whose 13-year career includes 23 postseason games and stints with four WNBA franchises, brought a veteran presence and a dose of leadership to the Mystics locker room. That leadership proved extremely valuable as Washington pushed through the postseason and into the WNBA Finals, further than any Mystics team had ever advanced.

 

NOTABLE ACHIEVEMENTS

  • Appeared in 32 games this season, trailing only Tierra Ruffin-Pratt and Kristi Toliver for most on the team.
  • Shot 38.6% from 3-point range, ranking third on the Mystics and 15th in the WNBA.
  • Scored 6.6 points per game in 15.9 minutes per game, the highest scoring average among Mystics players who averaged less than 20 minutes per game.
  • Scored 10+ points in seven games and 20+ points in one game, a 24-point, eight-rebound performance against the Las Vegas Aces on June 1.
  • Washington was 7-2 (.777) in 2018 in the nine games that Currie started.
  • Set a Mystics season high with 14 free throw attempts against Las Vegas on June 1.)

 

KEY PERFORMANCES

  • Scored a season-high and team-leading 24 points against Las Vegas on June 1, shooting 6-11(.545) from the field, 1-3 (.333) from 3-point range and 11-14 (.786) from the free throw line to go along with eight rebounds and two assists.
  • As Washington fought for playoff seeding in the final week of the season, Currie delivered a 14-point, five-rebound performance off the bench against Indiana on August 15.
