WNBA power rankings

Seattle Times reporter, Jayda Evans, ranks the WNBA teams. As Jayda pointed via Twitter, “lots of movement”…

Rank (Last Week)   Team (record), comment

  1. (1) Minnesota (4-0): Team looks better than 2011 championship season, averaging 15.2 margin in victories.
  2. (6) Los Angeles (3-1): Smart to make Kristi Toliver starting point, averaging 21 points, 4.5 assists.
  3. (4) Indiana (3-0): Yeah, two victories against Atlanta, but added depth and scoring punch this year.
  4. (2) Connecticut (3-0): Beating up on New York twice shouldn’t get anyone that excited.
  5. (3) Chicago (1-1): To coach Pokey Chatman’s chagrin, second in league in turnovers (22.5).
  6. (11) San Antonio (1-1): Finally holds home opener against Chicago on Wednesday.
  7. (5) Seattle (0-3): Reality check, Seattle’s defeats are all to likely two best teams in the WNBA.
  8. (8) Phoenix (1-2): Rookie Samantha Prahalis showing no fear in leading veteran Mercury team.
  9. (10) Atlanta (1-2): Angel McCoughtry leads WNBA in scoring (23.3) but team defense an issue.
  10. (9) Washington (1-1): Offense is anemic, averaging a league-low 60.5 points to start season.
  11. (12) Tulsa (0-3): Playing teams closer this year, losing by an average of 4.6 points.
  12. (7) New York (0-4): Liberty is getting an early jump on the Brittney Griner sweepstakes.
