MINNEAPOLIS (AP) When Lindsay Whalen retires from the WNBA at the end of this season, the gritty Minnesota Lynx point guard won't have trouble figuring out what to do next.

She's already started the next stage, after all, as the head coach at her alma mater.

Even before she was hired in the spring to take over the program she initially elevated at Minnesota, Whalen was already considering ending her playing career following a fourth championship with the Lynx. She agreed to return for one more year with her friends on the league's longest-lasting dynasty, one more summer of inspiring all those basketball-loving girls around the state and beyond.
