Former Missouri great and Phoenix Mercury rookie guard Sophie Cunningham made her WNBA playoffs debut last night against the Chicago Sky on ESPN2 in a single-elimination, first-round contest.
And she was certainly ready for it, too.

Cunningham scored three points while getting in for just 7:49 of game action. Sophie entered the game late in the third quarter.
The Mercury ultimately fell to the Sky 105-76, thus ending Sophie Cunningham’s rookie season.
Overall, the numbers in Cunningham’s rookie season won’t exactly jump out at you, but she definitely got some valuable experience to start her professional career. Playing alongside veterans Brittney Griner and Diana Taurasi can only help going forward.
If you want more Sophie Cunningham, as we all do, she is indeed in NBA 2K20!
Do not mistake her for her neutral personality, though.
NBA 2k20 says my personality is neutral... so for all you people who think I’m too feisty, sassy, or aggressive well it looks like you’re wrong. I would also like to state that they definitely didn’t put much effort into that fact of mine ♀️— Sophie Cunningham (@sophaller) September 11, 2019
