per Kent:

Right now Rachel Banham is in Florida preparing for the coronavirus-shortened 2020 WNBA season.

But she feels like she’s at home.

When the league kicks off its 22-game season later this month, it will mark the first time since 2006 the Lynx will not have Seimone Augustus, or Lindsay Whalen, or both, in their backcourt.

For Banham — who grew up in Minnesota watching both of those future Hall of Famers play — that means a big opportunity at a crucial point in her career.

“It’s huge,” Banham said by phone from Bradenton, Fla. “The last four years have been tough, not being able to get consistent minutes. It’s good to come here knowing the opportunity is there. Now I have to take advantage of it.”


Go Gophers!!

I hope she earns more playing time and we get to see that sweet shot connect frequently.
