There are no unbeaten teams remaining in the WNBA. The Minnesota Lynx fell in Seattle on Friday night 65-62.

The loss ends the unbeaten run from the Lynx to start the season.

It was disappointing for the Lynx, who led by eight at the half, but were outscored 21-11 in the fourth quarter.

The Lynx weren't knocking down the three's like normal, they were just 1 of 13 from behind the arc in the game.

No one had more than 12 points for Minnesota, both Maya Moore and Seimone Augustus each had 12. Lindsay Whalen finished with 11 points, seven rebounds and four steals in the loss.

Tanisha Wright and Crystal Langhome each had 13 points to lead the way for Seattle, in just their third win of the season.

The Lynx also found out Friday they will head to the White House next Thursday to celebrate last year's WNBA Championship.

President Obama will honor the Lynx, who won their second title in three seasons, last year. They swept their way through the playoffs.
