Yet another headline to add to Courtney Vandersloot’s record breaking season.
On Tuesday night, Vandersloot became the first WNBA player to dish out 50 assists across four consecutive games. The last player to get close to that number was the second all-time WNBA assist leader, Ticha Penicheiro, with 46.

Courtney also recorded a double-double in the record breaking performance. She has six double-doubles on the season, four of which happened in consecutive games. In those four games, Vandersloot averaged 12.5 assists and 14.3 points per game. She leads the league in assists per game averaging 8.5 this season and is 16 assists away from sitting in the tenth spot on the WNBA all-time assist leader chart.
Earlier in the season, Vandersloot recorded the seventh triple-double in WNBA history, the first in Chicago’s franchise history by banking 13 points, 10 rebounds, and a career-high 15 assists.
