    Wow great coverage WCCO! The lynx are in the Finals, mostly likely going to win Minnesota its first championship in years and you write less than a paragraph. Do the Lynx not deserve as much attention as the men’s teams simply because they are women? A couple of photo’s in my book just doesn’t cut it.

      that is exactly the reason…. it is womans basketball…. average attendance this year at a lynx game 680 fans….
