Rice Assistant Women's Basketball Coach Taj McWilliams-Franklin, who doubles as a post for the Minnesota Lynx of the WNBA, returns to the court on Friday, as her Lynx host the Washington Mystics on national television. The Lynx and the Mystics tip off at 7 p.m. on NBA TV.
McWilliams-Franklin has started all 19 games for a Minnesota team that currently leads the WNBA Western Conference with a 15-4 record. She is averaging 8.9 points and 6.0 rebounds per game for the Lynx.
