Lynx and Timberwolves owner exploring a sale of the teams
Minnesota Lynx owner Glen Taylor is exploring a sale of the Minnesota Timberwolves, though it is not clear whether he is also interested in selling the Lynx.
No official announcement has been made about his decision, but it would seem odd to sell just one basketball team rather than two, right?
Or maybe it would make a ton of sense! The Lynx have been a perennial juggernaut under Taylor’s leadership, a stark contrast from the Timberwolves run that he has caught constant heat for.
Kevin Garnett and a group of investors have emerged as a candidate to buy the Timberwolves, and if the Lynx go too, its possible Garnett could jump in on that too. They are, after all, the Big Ticket team. (Sorry, I had to).

Yesterday, we learned more about the directions the NCAA committee may go in. The most notable potential change includes a January start time, which would not only remove non-conference games but wildly complicate seeding for the NCAA tournament.
We do know that the NCAA women’s side is aiming to switch over to its adapted version of the NET rating system that the men’s game uses. They’ll have to make adjustments to the NET system, obviously, if there are no non-conference matchups.
In the collegiate realm, UT Martin’s mid-major superstar Chelsey Perry hasn’t stopped getting better. Which is absolutely, completely, and utterly terrifying. Last season, 23/8/2 splits on near 50/40/90 shooting. Just for good measure, she added 2.6 blocks and 1.6 steals per game on the other end of the court.
“I’ve basically just been perfecting my craft, increasing my foot speed, working on basic fundamentals, and my ball-handling,” Perry said. “I just can’t be the same player.”
Chelsey Perry is the closest thing the Ohio Valley Conference has to a boogeyman. And she just got a whole lot scarier.
In socials, many reacted to Aces star A’ja Wilson’s unapologetic letter to Black girls in the Player’s Tribune.
