Oct. 8, 2011
Head coach Pam Borton and the Minnesota women's basketball team wants to invite Golden Gopher fans to join them as they help celebrate former Gopher-great Lindsay Whalen and the Minnesota Lynx's first WNBA title in franchise history at a parade down Nicollet Mall Tuesday morning beginning at 11:30 a.m.
Borton and her entire 2011-12 squad will be on hand to support their former standout as well as celebrate the first professional sports title for a Minnesota team since the Twins won the World Series in 1991.
"I am just thrilled to bring a championship back to Minnesota," Whalen said in an interview with WNBA.com after her Lynx won the WNBA title. "It was a tough-fought series. Atlanta was unbelievable all series, but we just got the job done."
Following the parade, a rally will be held for the Lynx at the Target Center beginning at 12:15 p.m.
