Q&A: Nicole Ohlde, Pick #6, Minnesota Lynx

Q: Can you talk about playing professionally near your hometown?

Ohlde: Its definitely close to home and I think a lot of people are going to come visit. Im just so excited about the opportunity to play especially at Minneapolis and its just going to be exciting.

Q: How do you think your college career prepared you for today?

Ohlde: I think it definitely prepared me a lot just because you know when youre in college you definitely have to have a good work ethic. You need to be in the gym as much as you can while balancing school and all the other things that you have to do in college. But I think it just got me ready with the fact of trying to get my mind set to play a physical game, to play as often as youre going to in the league and just back-to-back. So, I think definitely it prepared us for a lot.
