Mara Braun remembers the cheers bouncing off the ancient walls and wooden bleachers of Williams Arena as the Minnesota Lynx won their last WNBA championship.

Paige Bueckers remembers sticking a poster featuring Lindsay Whalen on her bedroom wall, wearing Maya Moore gear and receiving an impromptu coaching session from Cheryl Reeve during a visit to the Life Time Fitness where the team used to practice.

Both became fans and followers of the team and the stands it took.

Whether the Lynx's excellence was causal or coincidental, two of the best high school basketball players to ever grow up in the Twin Cities were captivated by the winningest professional sports franchise in modern Minnesota history.
