Lindsay Whalen savors Hall of Fame honor but keeps her focus on replenishing the Gophers
April 7, 2022
Even when she was down in New Orleans over the weekend, going through the pomp and circumstance of being officially named a part of the 2022 Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame class, Lindsay Whalen's mind was in Minneapolis.
She was watching the NCAA's transfer portal grow - the number of Division I athletes in the portal is nearing the 1,000 mark - and seeing the movement that is affecting her Gophers women's basketball program and programs all around the country. She was planning for the future.
New Orleans was fun. But: "This is never from my mind,'' Whalen said Wednesday.
