January 28, 2013 — 6:41am
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.

In the vast majority of situations, you are going to need a QB and an offense that can play at a high enough level to win you a game instead of just not losing a game if you are going to make a Super Bowl run.
