April 13, 2018

With her No. 13 jersey hanging in the rafters of Williams Arena, Lindsay Whalen now will pace the venue’s sideline as the new head coach of the Gophers’ women’s basketball program.

Whalen, 35, the second-leading scorer in University of Minnesota history and winner of four WNBA championships with the Minnesota Lynx, will succeed Marlene Stollings, who left after four seasons Monday to take the same job with Texas Tech. Whalen’s hiring was announced by Gophers Athletics Director Mark Coyle on Thursday.
