    Nice cross-over. Absorbs contact and finishes.



    I think we know enough about Bridget to be sure she's been putting the work in.

    It was posted as an 11:00 a.m. game in the first post but the Cyclone created schedule posted above says 11 p.m. Do we know which it actually is?

    EDIT: Nevermind. Found it on the guide at 11 a.m.

    Wow, the lighting for TV coverage in this arena really sucks. Damn, it's an all TV season you'd think they would have this set up better.

    NBA footage is going to be similar from what I've seen. Mlb seems way more "normal" on TV.

    Not looking as much like the lopsided loss for the Lynx that it looked a few minutes ago but don't see them keeping it close. Maybe Bridget will get some 4th quarter time or maybe Reeves will just keep her first string in to the bitter end. I think Sims playing any meaningful minutes later in this super short season is wishful thinking.


    Edit: Well, that prediction was off. Lynx's now rolling with lead late in the 4th.

    https://www.espn.com/wnba/story/_/id/29559757/minnesota-lynx-lose-karima-christmas-kelly-season-ruptured-achilles

    Karina Christmas-Kelly suffered a ruptured right Achilles tendon in Tuesday's loss to Seattle and will miss the rest of the WNBA season. It was the first serious injury of the WNBA season, which began on Saturday.

    With Christmas-Kelly out, the Lynx still have 11 players on their roster, which has a maximum of 12.

    Bridget had the opportunity to play 7 minutes & score 2 points in the Seattle game. Hoping to see more of her on the court!

    Bridget getting a bunch of playing time in today's game.. It's halftime and she has 4 pts, 3 reb, and 1 assist in 15 minutes.

    Game is on NBATV.

    She played the entire 3rd quarter (picking up 4 more points) and sat the 4th. 8/3/1 total as the team won 78-69.

    I think the WNBA could really benefit from having games televised right after the NBA games. That also happened yesterday and I stuck around and watched it a little.

    23 MIN, 8 PTS and 3-3 FG today for Bridget! She played the most minutes off the bench and tied for a team-lead +9. Am I correct that the increase in playing time was largely due to an injury to a starting guard?

    It had to feel good to contribute to a win over Connecticut, the team that drafted and cut her.
