The Minnesota Lynx will look to stay undefeated on Sunday when they host the winless Seattle Storm. The game will be broadcast live on Fox Sports North.

The Minnesota Lynx are off to an undefeated start this season, handily dispatching their first two opponents before being challenged earlier this week by the previously-undefeated Los Angeles Sparks. It would seem then that the Lynx should have no trouble Sunday night against the winless Seattle Storm, but stranger things have happened.

Minnesota will likely be led once again Seimone Augustus considering she's averaging 22 points per game while shooting an astounding 62 percent from the field. Our friends over Lynx.com seem to believe Rebekkah Brunson will be key on Sunday night, however, as she matches up with center Ann Wauters.

Lynx forward Rebekkah Brunson has been a crucial part of the team's presence in the paint this season, both on the offensive and defensive ends. Averaging 14.3 points and 8 rebounds per game through the team's three, Brunson has been a key contributor, even against tough competitors like Candace Parker and Plenette Pierson.

Brunson was a driving force behind the Lynx's comeback on Sunday against the Sparks, scoring seven of her 17 points in the crucial fourth quarter and holding Parker, who had 23 points on the night, scoreless in the fourth.

Brunson will have her work cut out for her on the defensive end again tonight, with Wauters off to a strong start for the Storm this season. Scoring 17 and 15 points against the Sparks in her first two games this season, Wauters currently sits at a 16 points per game average, equaling her 2011 season average.

The game will tip off at 6 p.m. and, in a nice surprise, will be broadcast live on Fox Sports North.
