Swish Appeal caught up with Seimone Augustus before she makes her debut against the Atlanta Dream tonight after coming off a knee surgery.
Yes, the Minnesota Lynx came back to beat the San Antonio Stars yesterday, but there was another storyline that was exhibited: the dominance of Maya Moore and newly acquired Sylvia Fowles.
Anna Cruz was a leading force in the Lynx win last night. With the absence of Seimone Augustus, she stepped up as a leader and the rest of the team followed suit..
For a fraction of the 2015 season, Maya Moore has somewhat been in a slump offensively. But after the Minnesota Lynx’s last two games, both victories, she seems to have found her rhythm.
San Antonio Stars got their first win of the season against the Phoenix Mercury, 76-71. The Mercury struggled a lot, especially offensively. Their star center, Brittney Griner, will return next game after a 7-game suspension.
Rebekkah Bruson's came up huge for Minnesota in their home opener versus Tulsa. She had a double-double with 14 points and 18 rebounds.
The Washington Mystics return the majority of their core player, and with the emergence of rookie Natasha Cloud, the Mystics could be even better this season.
Will dominance in the post and more athleticism make a difference for the Liberty this season?
The Minnesota Lynx ended the preseason with a victory over the New York Liberty, 85-80.
