Gopher legend Lindsay Whalen will coach in her first-ever game Friday when Minnesota hosts New Hampshire at Williams Arena. The game is sold out and Whalen says that’s amazing:

“Something special about this building that when its full and people are into it there is a certain energy that when you’re the home team, it gives you a distinct advantage.”

The Gopher women have not sold out a game since Whalen played for the Gophers in the mid-2000s. Friday’s game starts at 8 o’clock.
