June 7, 2012
New Owls' assistant women's basketball coach Taj McWilliams-Franklin is busy with her summer job as a power forward for the WNBA's Minnesota Lynx.
The Lynx have started the 2012 season with an impressive 8-0 start after trouncing the Seattle Storm 79-55 on Wednesday. In the contest, McWilliams-Franklin scored a game-high 17 points by making all eight field goal attempts and a free throw in just under 20 minutes of action.
McWilliams-Franklin was happy with the win, but not totally satisfied in how she played.
"You know, hey, I scored, I didn't miss. It's great. But I'm more upset about the turnovers and so I have to work on that. Passes to certain players, I've got to work on that and know who I'm passing to and work on my own game and deficiencies that [I've] had this year."
The Lynx moved within one victory of tying the WNBA record set by Los Angeles in 2001 of victories to start the season. The Sparks also won their first nine games in 2003.
Minnesota's next game is on Saturday, June 9 when it plays at Tulsa (0-6). Three of Minnesota's eight victories have been on the road and it leads Los Angeles (5-1) in the Western Conference standings.
