There are only two games left this season as the New York Liberty and Chicago Sky duke it out for the final playoff spot in the league.

Week 12: Lynx and Liberty buzzing (September 11 2012)

Week 11: Lynx regain the top spot (September 5, 2012)
After a tiny stumble before the Olympics break, the Minnesota Lynx have gone back to dominating just about every team on the rankings board.

Week 10: Sparks soar to the top (August 28, 2012)
The Los Angeles Sparks are on a 9-game winning streak now that they've put the kibbosh on the Silver Stars' impressive 12 game streak of their own.

Week 9: Silver Stars on top (July 17, 2012)
The San Antonio Silver Stars head into the Olympic break at the top spot now that the underdogs are on an impressive 9-game winning streak.

Week 8: Silver Stars dethrone the Lynx (July 10, 2012)
The San Antonio Silver Stars are the first team in the league to knock off the Lynx from the top spot on the rankings board this season.

Week 7: Silver Stars on fire (July 3, 2012)
The San Antonio Silver Stars hot streak continues after beating the league's top-notch Minnesota Lynx and Los Angeles Sparks.

Week 6: Silver Stars and Storm rebound (June 25, 2012)

Week 5: Underdogs gaining ground (June 18, 2012)
The Seattle Storm shut down the Minnesota Lynx in a headline grabbing win. Solid week of basketball for the league's underdog teams.

Week 4: Lynx, Sky and Sun breaking records (June 11, 2012)

Week 3: Lynx Remain Golden, Sparks Not Far Behind (June 4, 2012)
The Minnesota Lynx are the only defeated team in the league right now at an impressive 7-0. But there are four other teams with only one loss apiece giving the rankings a good shakeup.

Week 2: Lynx On Top, Sparks Gaining Ground (May 28, 2012)
After a full week of WNBA play, the Minnesota Lynx live up to the hype leading the way with a 4-0 record. On the flip-side, the New York Liberty kick off the season with an 0-4 record, falling short of their reputation as a playoff-worthy competitor.

Week 1: Let the Games Begin (May 21, 2012)
The defending champion Minnesota Lynx go into the season as a favorite to win it all again. But looking at training camp reports, preseason and opening weekend matchups, finding out which team is going to put up a fight against Minnesota this year is where it gets interesting.
