Mercury knock Cambage's Wings out of WNBA

The maiden WNBA post-season campaign of Dallas Wings' Australian star Liz Cambage has come to an end after a first-round loss at the Phoenix Mercury.

Phoenix Mercury have tamed the Dallas Wings' Australian star Liz Cambage to decisively win their WNBA first round sudden death play-off game.

The Mercury, coached by Australian Olympic coach Sandy Brondello and led by DeWanna Bonner, Diana Taurasi and Brittney Griner, won 101-83 on Tuesday in Tempe, Arizona, to knock the Wings out of the post-season.

Cambage had 22 points and 12 rebounds while Skylar Diggins-Smith led Dallas with 23 points and seven assists. However, they were outmatched by a combined 72 points from Phoenix's All-Star trio and Opals forward Stephanie Talbot, who chimed in with 11 points and 11 rebounds.
