Cause for pause

Eastern and Western Conference players of the month for August are Tamika Catchings and Kristi Toliver, respectively.

The Minnesota Lynx are back on top of this week’s power rankings:

1. Lynx
2. Sun
3. Fever
4. Sparks
5. Silver Stars
6. Dream
7. Storm
8. Sky
9. Liberty
10. Shock
11. Mercury
12. Mystics

The Lynx’s nine-game winning streak seems to indicate that they are pulling away, and might be on the road to a repeat championship.

WNBA bonus:

The league gets an A-plus for diversity in hiring.
