NEW YORK, Oct. 17, 2016 – Renee Brown, WNBA Chief of Basketball Operations and Player Relations, issued the following statement today regarding a play in the final minute of the fourth quarter of the Minnesota Lynx’s 85-79 win over the Los Angeles Sparks on Sunday at Staples Center.

“After reviewing postgame video, we have determined that with 0:17.7 remaining in regulation time, Minnesota released the ball for a pass from the backcourt and the ball was still in the backcourt when the shot clock turned to 0:16. An 8-second violation should have been called on Minnesota. This play is not a trigger to review via instant replay.”
