Allie Quigley wins 6th Woman of the Year award

Chicago Sky guard Allie Quigley is one of the cogs on the team's bench. As she goes, so does the Sky. The WNBA saw her hard work, and once again recognized her status as the most valuable bench player in the league.

The Chicago Sky have one more reason to celebrate before tonight's first-round game against the Indiana Fever.

Allie Quigley, the 6th-year guard from DePaul, was named the WNBA's Sixth Woman of the Year, presented by Chevrolet for the most valuable player off the bench. For Quigley, this is her second consecutive year winning the award.

Quigley finished fourth in scoring for the Sky, and also served as a valuable back to guards Cappie Pondexter and Courtney Vandersloot. Her 11.1 points per game, 1.8 rebounds and 1.7 assists were a huge help off the bench, and her 34 percent shooting from the three point line were a big factor in the team averaging 82 points per game.

Quigley got 24 of the 39 votes to win this year; with New York Liberty rookie Kiah Stokes getting 11 votes to take second. Shavonte Xellous and Natalie Achonwa of the Indiana Fever (who the Sky play tonight) finished third and fourth in the voting, while Shekinna Stricklen of the Connecticut Sun finished in fifth.
