MINNEAPOLIS (AP) In a story March 13 about the Minnesota Lynx signing free-agent guard Tanisha Wright, The Associated Press reported erroneously that Wright just completed her first season as an assistant coach at the University of North Carolina. She spent that season as an assistant at UNC Charlotte, not UNC.
A corrected version of the story is below:
Minnesota Lynx sign guard Tanisha Wright
Lynx sign free-agent guard Tanisha Wright; 12-year veteran most recently played for New York
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Minnesota Lynx have signed free-agent guard Tanisha Wright.
The defending WNBA champions announced Wright's signing Tuesday. Terms were not disclosed.
