Carleton Moves Into Starting Role With The Lynx
Bridget Carleton has moved from playing a single minute in the season’s opener, to earning a starting role with the Minnesota Lynx.
Carleton is now playing 30+ minutes per game frequently, and is averaging well over 20 minutes per game, despite starting the season playing 1-, 7-, and 8-minutes in her first three games.
Since those games, Carleton has played less than 23-minutes only once.
In that time, she’s scored double digits three times and is averaging 7.6 points per game and 2.2 rebounds.
Starting 5 of Minnesota’s 12 games is no small feat for the second year player, still the third youngest on her team, who was picked up late in the season by the Lynx last year after being waived by Connecticut.
The Lynx currently sit 4th in the WNBA and have won 3 straight games.
Carleton and the Minnesota Lynx play the Atlanta Dream at 4pm today.
