Whalen leads another team, this one in Turkey, to title

Posted by: Roman Augustoviz under Lynx Updated: January 8, 2013 - 7:41 AM

Lindsay Whalen's team in Turkey, Galatasaray, won the Turkish Cup on Sunday by defeating Fenerbahce 74-72.

Whalen, the Lynx's point guard the past three seasons, had 13 points and 12 assists in the game. Her  in-bounds pass to Sancho Lyttle for the buzzer-beating, game-winning shot was her final assist.

Galatasaray has won fourth consecutive Turkish Cups and 10 overall.

Here are highlights from the game, including the game- winning play and the three-pointer by Fenerbahce’s Cappie Pondexter that tied the game. (Whalen is wearing No. 13 in the half gold-half maroon jersey.):

 Whalen led the Lynx to the 2011 WNBA title. Last season the Lynx lost to Indiana in the league finals.
