Rebekkah Brunson scored 19 points and Lindsay Whalen added 17 to help the Minnesota Lynx overcome a poor performance by Maya Moore and beat the Tulsa Shock 83-74 on Friday night.

Maya Moore scored 26 points and Seimone Augustus added 20 as the Minnesota Lynx opened the season with a 90-74 victory over the Connecticut Sun on Saturday night. Moore and Augustus combined to shoot 20 for 32 from the floor for the Lynx (1-0), who shot 50 percent. Kara Lawson made five 3-pointers and finished with 22 points for the Sun (1-2).
The Lynx open their season Saturday night. Finally. By a quirk in the schedule, they’re the last to get going. Half the teams in the WNBA have already played twice, including Saturday’s opponent – Connecticut. No matter how many games you play, there’s nothing like an opening night, says Lynx guard Lindsay Whalen.
Friday’s a big night for Gopher athletics. Four Gopher teams — the men’s and women’s hockey and basketball teams are competing in prime time tournaments tonight.
Tayler Hill scored 25 points to help Ohio State beat Minnesota 58-47 on Thursday in the opening round of the Big Ten Conference tournament.
