MAYA: "IF THERE'S A TROPHY TO WIN, WE WANT TO WIN IT"
The 2014 WNBA season has started the same way that 2013 ended -- with the Minnesota Lynx hoisting a championship trophy.
The trophy is a little bit smaller this time around, but as Maya Moore put it, "if there's a trophy to be won, we want to win it."
The Lynx won the first-ever WNBA Preseason Tournament by defeating the Chicago Sky, 76-69, on Sunday afternoon at the ESPN Wild World of Sports Complex at Walt Disney World. Moore set the tone by scoring 13 points in the first quarter and the Lynx never relinquished control. Moore finished with 16 points, making all five of her attempts from the field and all four of her free-throw attempts. The Lynx also got significant contributions from forward Asia Taylor, who had 18 points, and forward Damiris Dantas, who had eight points and nine rebounds.
The 10AM tip-off time didn't slow down the Fever as they topped the Mercury, 75-60, in the first game on Sunday.
Rookie Natasha Howard shined for Indiana, scoring 16 points on 7-for-8 shooting. Karima Christmas (above) capped off her strong showing in Disney with seven points. The Mercury were led by Candice Dupree who had 15.
