Lynx sign first-round pick Lindsey Moore to contract

The Minnesota Lynx have announced the signing of first-round draft pick Lindsey Moore, whom the squad selected 12th overall in the recent WNBA draft.

Moore, 21, averaged 15.1 points and 5.7 assists as a senior at Nebraska last season, dishing out a school-record 195 assists in the process. She finished the season ranked first in the Big Ten in assist-to-turnover ratio (2.14).

In the NCAA tournament, Moore led Nebraska to the regional semifinals for the second time in her collegiate career. In doing so, she became the first player in school history to start on a pair of Sweet 16 squads.

The first chance for fans to see Moore and the 2013 Lynx in action at home is during the team’s preseason contest against Connecticut at noon on Tuesday, May 21.
