Candice Wiggins is a world champ

In other Lynx-related news:

Sony Athinaikos captured the EuroCup Women title on Thursday night by completing a narrow two-legged triumph over Russian outfit Nadezhda.

The Orenburg team trailed by eight points after the first leg and managed to close the gap to just two points on aggregate late on Thursday, but it ended up winning the second leg 57-53.

That gave Athinaikos a 118-114 victory overall.


Candice Wiggins opened the second quarter with a three pointer that was answered immediately by another triple of Burik.


Monique Currie made her free throws and a lay-up after her own offensive rebound and the Orenburg outfit looked good to go.

Then Candice Wiggins showed her class by burying another three pointer and the Greeks came up with a big steal at half court to give them the ball up five on aggregate and 55 seconds to go in the thriller.

I cannot stress just how good of a team the Lynx is putting together.
