Perhaps you’ve barely caught your breath after the Minnesota Lynx’s exhilarating 2016 season in which they finished with the best record in the WNBA and were thisclose to the league title.
Then we looked up and the team’s biggest stars were chasing gold in the Summer Olympic Games as members of the USA Women’s National Team.
Let’s call that the ultimate tune-up for the 2017 season. It all tips off on Wednesday, April 26 with the Star Tribune Press Pass: Minnesota Lynx Season Preview.
It’s your invitation to talk shop with Maya Moore, coach Cheryl Reeve and team president Chris Wright, along with Star Tribune columnist Chip Scoggins and Lynx beat writer Kent Youngblood. You’ll learn all there is to know about the team and its preparations for the season. The Star Tribune’s Michael Rand -- @RandBall on Twitter for you social media savants – will moderate this exciting panel.
Get to know the Lynx’s newest draft picks, quiz Moore about the Olympic experience, talk about the team playing at the Xcel Energy Center this season and learn first-hand about the push they’ll make to get back to the WNBA championship game.
Youngblood and Scoggins are plugged in and ready to keep you in the loop all season long.
The Lynx Season Preview will be held at Cambria on 7th Gallery (625 2nd Ave. S, #101, Minneapolis, 55402). Doors open at 5:15 p.m., and the panel discussion starts at 6 p.m. Tickets are $10 and includes free appetizers and a cash bar.
