Lynx rally past Connecticut for victory in season opener

Lynx guard Crystal Dangerfield reacted after being fouled by Connecticut guard Natisha Hiedeman during the second half.

This was pretty much uncharted territory for Sylvia Fowles.

We're not talking about on the court. What she did for the Minnesota Lynx Sunday in the 2020 WNBA opener inside the "bubble" at the IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla., was vintage Fowles: Seventeen points on 7-for-11 shooting, 18 rebounds - tied with Rebekkah Brunson (2015) for most by a Lynx player on opening day - and four blocks.

But it was what she did behind the scenes that might have pushed the Lynx to an impressive, come-from-behind 77-69 victory over Connecticut.
