Well-traveled guard Kalana Greene signed Wednesday with the Lynx, the team announced.

Greene, a former University of Connecticut star, has played with four WNBA teams in her career, most recently San Antonio from June 23 to July 28.

In 11 games with the Stars, she averaged 4.4 points and 2.9 rebounds.

She gives the Lynx needed depth in the backcourt since starters Lindsay Whalen (bursitis) and Seimone Augustus (foot) are both out for the rest of the regular season at least.

Greene played with Maya Moore and Renee Montgomery of the Lynx for three seasons at UConn, including 2008-09 when the Huskies won the national championship.

UND to offer aid to more

North Dakota announced it will expand the awarding of full amended grant-in-aid to all student-athletes on scholarship beginning with the 2016-17 academic year.

UND already provides full cost of attendance to men's and women's hockey players.

"This is a necessary step that empowers our coaches to continue recruiting high-caliber student-athletes," UND athletic director Brian Faison said.

"It puts our coaches on equal financial footing when competing against regional peer institutions for the best recruits."
