All-Stars Highlight Lynx Opening Night Roster


The Minnesota Lynx finalized the team's roster for Opening Night - Saturday, May 15 at Tulsa - by suspending Rebekkah Brunson pending her arrival from Italy and placing Kathrin Ress on the Suspended List.

The 2010 Lynx roster features hometown legend and former University of Minnesota Golden Gopher Lindsay Whalen, along with the WNBA's all-time scoring average leader and U.S. Olympian Seimone Augustus and 2009 All-Stars Nicky Anosike and Charde Houston.

Minnesota's Home Opener is Sunday, May 16 vs. Washington, with tip-off set for 6:00 p.m. at Target Center. The first 3,000 fans to Sunday's game will receive a Lindsay Whalen Holographic Collector's Card. The Lynx will host a pre-game party on Target Field Plaza from 3:30 - 5:30 p.m., with Candice Wiggins and Seimone Augustus signing autographs from 4:30 - 5:00 p.m.

Lower-level tickets for the opener start at just $10 and can be purchased by calling 612-673-8400, e-mailing tickets@lynxbasketball.com, or visiting the Lynx Web site.
