    Not only does her status as a global basketball star bring attention to the University of Minnesota, it also leads to random run-ins with other superstars. For example, NBA star Dywane Wade stopped by Gophers practice on Saturday.

    "Big thanks to @lindsaywhalen and staff for opening up the doors this am to my family and i to come in and get a quick sweat," Wade posted on Instagram. "It’s also dope talking to the next generation of hoopers!!! Thank you ladies for being so cool as well!!! @gopherwbb."

    Dwyane is a lot smaller than I thought.

    With not much happening yet, this article by Jim Walsh of City Page on December 23, 2003 is worth rehashing. I apologize if it has already been posted.

    Folks, we have a State Gem in Lindsay Whalen - a rare find. One can understand why it was a no brainer for her to unequivocally accept the Gophers' offer to be the next women's basketball coach.

    Powerhouse: How Lindsay Whalen resurrected the Lady Gophers

    “I would like, out of the whole thing, for people in 20 years to think back,” she says. “Hopefully, the team would have won a few national championships by then and gone to Final Fours, and it”d be cool to look back to the years that we turned it around, and to know that we”re the reason why a lot of that happened.” Lindsay Whalen, December 23, 2003.

    Welcome home Lindsay Whalen. Now you have a chance to fulfill those dreams.

    She brings two people connected to the Final Four season to be part of her coaching staff: Kelly Roysland who was her left wing, and Coach O'Banion who was an assistant coach back then.

    I haven't figured out Whalen's recruiting style. So far, the Gophers are pretty stealthy under her. She is very low key.

    I think their style is skilled big bodied guards and athletic posts. from the offers we have seen, it seems they either are offering more elite kids or at least have the ear of more elite kids. Have offers out to I think 8 of the top 60 in ESPN class of 2020. Have offered what seems like the top 2 or 3 kids in Minnesota in each class of 2020, 2021 and 2022. I am excited how the recruiting has been to date.

    It looks like tall kids who can play defense and drive to the basket, and really good point guards not unlike Whalen herself.

    Whalen has always been like a player coach who distributes the ball to put the team in the best scenario to win. She can score a bunch of points and will, but would rather get the entire team involved in the offense. From what I hear and read, team mates really like her on and off the field because she made playing fun for everyone.
