The Bantam Menace

Small-market squad is giving Merc a run for its money

It’s easy, especially in a league historically dominated by megalopoli like the WNBA, to write off small-market teams like the Minnesota Lynx, but the Phoenix Mercury won’t. The surprising Lynx, who’ve never finished higher than third in the West, whipped the Merc last time out and owned the best record in the league at the time of writing, with four players averaging in double figures. Though sharpshooter Seimone Augustus has been injured on and off, stellar play by rookie guard Candice Wiggins has kept Minnesota on the winning track.
