(Indianapolis, IN) -- The WNBA's Minnesota Lynx completed the preseason with an unbeaten 2-0 record after last night's 76-70 win at Indiana.
Hutchinson native Lindsay Whalen led Lynx scorers with 12 points. The former Golden Gopher helped push the Lynx to a 15-point lead at one point. Minnesota opens the regular season on Friday night at Los Angeles. The home portion of the regular season schedule is set for Sunday at the Target Center against Los Angeles.
Former Golden Gopher great Kevin McHale has made it official. He's the new head coach of the Rockets after he agreed to terms. The "Houston Chronicle" originally reported that the Rockets agreed in principle to a three-year contract with NBA Hall of Famer. The deal would also include a team option for a fourth year. The 53-year-old McHale replaces Rick Adelman, who was let go after four seasons at the helm. McHale previously coached the Minnesota Timberwolves and starred as a pro player for the Boston Celtics. He is a native of Hibbing.
