The Minnesota Lynx were uprooted from their home arena at Target Center this season while it undergoes some much-needed renovations.

While the Lynx played in unfamiliar territory at Xcel Energy Center during the regular season, Lindsay Whalen will feel right at home in the playoffs. With Xcel Energy Center occupied this month, the Lynx are moving again to Williams Arena, where the University of Minnesota plays.

The top-seeded Lynx play Washington in the semifinals. The Mystics beat New York on Sunday thanks to nine 3-pointers from Kristi Toliver, who was a member of the Los Angeles Sparks team that beat Minnesota in the WNBA Finals last season.

Game 1 is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. Tuesday.

Whalen is a former Golden Gopher and says she can't wait to return to the building she starred in during college.
