MINNEAPOLIS — A weekend that had the world’s eyes fixated on the women’s basketball and the state of Minnesota during the 2022 Women’s Final Four at the Target Center, Lindsay Whalen was named as a member of the Naismith Memorial Basketballย Hall of Fame Class of 2022. Whalen is one of the most decorated basketball players to come through the Land of 10,000 Lakes, and the world took notice at the incredible accomplishments of the now first ballot Hall of Famer out of Hutchinson, Minn.

From Alex Rodriguez and Renee Montgomery to currentย Minnesota men’s basketball coach Ben Johnson, many took to Twitter throughout the weekend to congratulate the Gopher legend on the call to the Hall of Fame.ย 

Many members of the media both locally and nationally quickly shared some of their favorite stories about Whalen during her basketball journey.ย 

The next step for Whalen and the rest of the Class of 2022 will be the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame Enshrinement Ceremony in September. The event will be held on Saturday, Sept. 10, in Springfield, Mass.
