Lynx 75, Shock 72

September 10, 2009

The Lynx kept their playoff hopes alive with a victory on Wednesday night.

Stay tuned for fantasy football updates, including the defensive fantasy points allowed weekly chart I did last season starting after Week 1.

Sparks 76, Lynx 70

July 29, 2009

It’s been awhile, but I finally got back on the writing horse last night. The Lynx have been inexplicably bad at home recently, and Candice Wiggins now has knee trouble flaring up. Meanwhile, the Sparks are improving and still will get Lisa Leslie back. Here’s the link to last night’s game story.;_ylt=AtaQIdBj4Xvr3Zn0lIw3jgF2vrYF?gid=20090728011

Monarchs 74, Lynx 68

The worst team in the Western Conference beat the best team in the Western Conference on its home floor on Thursday. Seimone Augustus scored 30 points the first time these teams met this season in a Lynx win, so her absence combined with a 22-4 clobbering in second chance points and 13-for-21 from the line did in Minnesota.;_ylt=Au8ZNHnVQfaT8XgOle_5YCB2vrYF?gid=20090702011

Lynx 69, Liberty 57

Yep, got to cover the Lynx last night. No Seimone Augustus, but Minnesota still won. Candice Wiggins is a nice player. Her and a healthy Seimone would be a formidable 1-2 punch. That’s enough commentary for me.

Lynx 86, Fever 76

September 10, 2008

What was supposed to be an easy night of work at my last WNBA game of the season turned into a busy evening as the Lynx lost Seimone Augustus to a head injury in the first quarter. So I spent much of the game running back and forth between the game and the concourse to try to catch a glimpse of what was going on with Augustus, and later first-round pick Candice Wiggins, who also was lost for the game in the first half with a sprained knee. 

Ultimately I wrote in the neighborhood of eight versions for two total stories, which made for a long night. Fortunately it appears that Augustus should be OK — I saw her walking under her own power as she left the building to get a CT scan. 

By the end of the night I guess I wrote a bit too much now that I see what the editors pared it down to, but too much is better than not enough I guess.

You better believe this is your place to go for all the WNBA action that’s fit to print!

OK, not really. But I did cover the Lynx’s victory over San Antonio on Sunday, moving the surprising club to 6-1 and in FIRST PLACE in the Western Conference. Sure, there were more people on the most cramped press row I’ve ever encountered than there were in the seats, but you can bet there will be more fannies in the stands for the return of Lindsay Whalen to Minneapolis on Tuesday.

Personally, I find it hard to believe that Charde Houston has never lost back-to-back basketball games in her life, but maybe I’m just jealous…
