Brown and Christmas-Kelly at Minnesota Training Camp
Two former Blue Devils took part in the Minnesota Lynx’ training camp this past week, both receiving positive reviews. In just her second year in the league, Lexie Brown stood out from the rest as a versatile player at both point guard and shooting guard. Originally playing for the Connecticut Sun, Brown was mostly watched from the sidelines. This season, however, Brown might even find herself as the starting point guard for the Lynx. Karima Christmas-Kelly, also new to the Lynx, is coming off a season-ending injury. Although not an easy feat, Christmas-Kelly is also making a name for herself on the team as a major key to the Lynx’ defensive game.
Lexie’s been hooping in Minnesota. Starting PG in her second year in the league? 🤔🤔🤔— Duke Women’s Basketball (@DukeWBB) May 10, 2019
