Rachel Banham and the Connecticut Sun, currently in third place, have won eight of their past nine games. Banham tallied 10 points in 13 minutes, including a pair of 3-pointers, as the Sun beat the Atlanta Dream on Aug. 15. She contributed four points to the Sun’s Aug. 20 win against the Phoenix Mercury.

Amanda Zahui B. and the New York Liberty are riding a six-game winning streak. The former Gophers center has scored in four of those six games. The Liberty has locked up a playoff berth and currently sits in fourth place.

Lindsay Whalen is still out after surgery to repair a left hand fracture. Her Minnesota Lynx remain at the top of the league standings. The Lynx hope to have their point guard back for playoffs at Williams Arena, but no anticipated timeline for her return has been announced.
