Cambage's incredible performance came shooting 17-of-22 as she outscored the entire starting five of the Liberty.
She eclipsed the previous WNBA single-game scoring record of 51, held by Tulsa's Riquna Williams, with a three in the last minute of the game, polishing off a 104-87 win for the Wings over the New York Liberty.
Elizabeth Cambage #8 of the Dallas Wings shoots a free throw against the New York Liberty on July 17, 2018 at College Park Center in Arlington, Texas. She added five points in the third quarter and broke her previous high of 37 points on a three-point play with 7:29 remaining. Cambage becomes just the second player in WNBA history to score over 50 points in a game. She opted to return to the WNBA this year and has been a huge part of the 13-9 Wings' season.
Australia's Liz Cambage has had an historic day in the WNBA with a record-breaking 53 points in a game and earning a place in the league's All-Star game. "I've heard a lot of people say I could never have big numbers here in the WNBA", Cambage said after the game, according to the league.
"Let us play our game and try not to soften it because it is making it boring and right now it makes me feel like they are trying to make it more ladylike". She also added 10 rebounds and five blocked shots in her record-setting performance. Coming into Tuesday's tilt, Cambage was averaging 19.9 points-per-game.

A light rain in the morning that gave way to soft sunlight in the afternoon took some of the sting out of Carnoustie. He left it well short, behind a bunker, and had to play a pitch over the top of the bunker and onto the green.
Cambage was recently selected for the WNBA All-Star game, her second call up after a five-year absence from the USA league, adding to her 2011 breakout season selection.
Dallas coach Fred Williams was ejected with 1:44 remaining in the third quarter.
It's amusing how earlier in the season, Liz Cambage was held off an espnW poster of WNBA Players who are superstars and All-Stars for players to start their WNBA franchise with and the WNBA world noticed that Cambage was missing.
In her post-game interview, Cambage took a shot at her haters. I don't think ESPN will overlook Liz Cambage anymore any time soon.
