WNBA Update - May 19
May 19, 2017

Three former Golden Gophers began their WNBA seasons during the past week.


Lindsay Whalen helped the hometown Minnesota Lynx to a 2-0 start. The starting point guard tallied eight points and five assists in the opener against the Chicago Sky, then 12 points and five assists at the New York Liberty.

Amanda Zahui B. took on a fellow Gopher when the Lynx visited Madison Square Garden. She had notched four points and two rebounds in the opener against the San Antonio Stars before also seeing action against the Lynx.

Rachel Banham, the Gophers’ most recent addition to the WNBA ranks, returned to the court for the first time since early last season. She underwent knee surgery during the 2016 season, then decided against playing overseas in order to focus on recovering for training camp. Banham played in the Connecticut Sun’s game against the Atlanta Dream last weekend.
