MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – The WNBA has named Minnesota Lynx forward Rebekkah Brunson its Western Conference Player of the Week after she started the season with four consecutive double-doubles.

 

Brunson averaged a team-high 14.8 points per game and a league-high 14 rebounds per game in leading the Lynx to a 3-1 start. She shot .641 percent from the floor, second-best in the WNBA.

 

It’s Brunson’s second career Player of the Week honors. The 6-foot-2 forward has a total of 42 career double-doubles — 16 as a Lynx player.

 

Indiana’s Katie Douglass is the Eastern Conference Player of the Week.
