While making the rounds at the Minnesota State Fair this week, Gophers coach Lindsay Whalen spoke with the KSTP Sports team.

Among a few talking points, she explained to us the reasoning behind unretiring her Gophers jersey No. 13 for this year. Whalen is allowing 6th year senior Gadiva Hubbard to wear it.

In her three seasons guiding the Gophers, Whalen has led the program to a 45-39 mark. Recruiting has been going well, with Whalen securing a few commitments over the next couple years.

Whalen also touched on in our chat the game this winter vs. Hopkins alum Paige Buekers and UCONN, who from her team has stood out in summer workouts, and more.
