But what about the first-timers? McCarville was out of the league when the Lynx won in 2011. This time, united with former Gophers teammate Whalen, she got to experience this for herself. It was her between-the-legs pass to Brunson after a steal was the signature moment of that third-quarter run.

“I wouldn’t want to be anywhere but here,” she said, “that’s for damn sure.”
