The Team USA women's basketball team begins play on July 28 in the 2012 London Olympics. Three of the 12 members of the team are Minnesota Lynx: forward Maya Moore and guards Seimone Augustus and Lindsay Whelan.
The three are eager and very ready to play, MPR reports.
The WNBA will take a five week break for the Olympics, and the team ended the first part of the season on a high note – the Lynx snapped a three-game losing streak on Thursday over the Tulsa Shock.
The Lynx season will resume Aug. 17 with 15 remaining home games. Those games will feel like the playoffs, coach Cheryl Reeve said.
