Sylvia Fowles may have grabbed the most hardware a women’s basketball player can earn: three Olympic gold medals, WNBA championship rings and the WNBA’s 2017 most valuable player trophy.

On Sunday, she and her Minnesota Lynx teammates played in front of an announced crowd of 4,203 fans at Des Moines’ Wells Fargo Arena.

The 6-foot-6 center has found a big mission for the young fans that look up to her.

“It definitely was good to play in front of all these young girls today and give them the sense of urgency they can do it, too,” Fowles said.
