Fox Sports North will televise nine Lynx games – two on the road -- this season, with Marney Gellner doing the play-by-play alongside Lea B. Olsen.

Those nine telecasts include the team’s home opener vs. Connecticut and the June 13 game at Atlanta in a rematch of the 2013 finals. All but two of the nine games – June 22 vs. Indiana and June 29 vs. Atlanta – will be on Fox Sports North plus.

Here is the list:

May 18 vs. Connecticut; May 30 vs. San Antonio; June 13 at Atlanta; June 22 vs. Indiana; June 29 vs. Seattle; July 22 vs. Atlanta; July 25 vs. San Antonio; Aug. 15 at San Antonio; Aug. 16 vs. Tulsa.

Meanwhile, the Lynx put in their final practice in Minnesota before heading down to Orlando for the WNBA preseason tournament over the weekend. Before practice began, coach Cheryl Reeve named Maya Moore one of the team captains. It is another first for Moore, who is entering her fourth WNBA season. “It was pretty exciting step for me this year, to be more a part of the leadership,” she said. “It’s more than anything trust. It shows the trust growing in the eyes of the coaches and the [other] captains.’’

Moore joins Lindsay Whalen, Rebekkah Brunson and Seimone Augustus as captains.
