Sparks' Toliver named WNBA Most Improved Player

Los Angeles Sparks guard Kristi Toliver was named the WNBA's Most Improved Player for the 2012 campaign on Thursday.

Toliver posted career-highs in scoring (17.5 ppg), assists (4.9 apg), rebounds (3.2 rpg) and steals (1.3 spg), while starting all but one of 34 games for the Sparks.

The fourth-year pro received 24 of 41 votes from a panel of national and local sportswriters and broadcasters, beating out Phoenix Mercury guard/forward DeWanna Bonner, who finished with seven votes.

New York Liberty guard Kia Vaughn won this award last year.
