Locked on Women’s Basketball: Here come the Minnesota Lynx
Since Moriah Jefferson joined the Lynx she's been probably playing the best basketball of her career
It’s time for another episode of the Locked on Women’s Basketball podcast. This episode features host Howard Megdal and The Next Minnesota Lynx beat reporter Lucas Seehafer to discuss the resilient Lynx, once 3-13 and left for dead, now having defeated the league’s top two teams convincingly.
Lucas talks about how Moriah Jefferson is impacting the Minnesota Lynx:
“Yeah, so I mean, I think prior to Moriah Jefferson joining the Lynx, the kind of the talk about her was like yeah, she’s talented, she’s good outside threat, maybe a little undersized for the position, but just unable to stay kind on the court, carve out some playing time on some of her previous teams. Well, since she’s joined the Lynx, she’s been probably playing the best basketball of her career.”

Lucas talks more about Moriah Jefferson and what she has done so far this season with Minnesota:
“Yeah, and I think granted, all-star roster spots are limited. And there’s over abundance of talent in the WNBA. But, I mean, from a strictly statistical point of view, I think you could make the argument that she could be an all-star this year, obviously, she didn’t make it, but I mean, she’s averaging career highs almost across the board, in terms of productivity, particularly on per 36 minute basis, to 50% from three and the way she just controls the offense.”
