The Lynx are the only undefeated team in the league.

Her best game last week came against Connecticut, where she dropped 21 points, 13 rebounds and a season-high five blocks.

Fowles is now the only player in the league who ranks in the top 10 in scoring, rebounding, steals, blocks and field goal accuracy.

This is Fowles’ ninth Player of the Week award and second with the Lynx. She is the first Western Conference player to win the award in the first two weeks of the season.
