Becky Hammon already made history when she became the first female head coach in NBA summer league.

Leading the San Antonio Spurs to the Las Vegas Summer League championship just made the experience that much sweeter.

Hammon coached the Spurs to a 93-90 victory over the Phoenix Suns in the title game on Monday night.

“It was a grind,” Hammon said. “They’ve been together for 17 days. They really started to jell the last two or three games”

The players gave Hammon a Gatorade bath during the celebration in the locker room, and the Spurs were the third team to win the Vegas Summer League tournament, following the Warriors in 2013 and Kings in 2014.
