CANDICE WIGGINSGame 716 | May 13, 2008 | Candice Wiggins, Don Zierden
Winner of the Wade Trophy as the outstanding women's college basketball player in the country, Wiggins was the top draft choice of the Minnesota Lynx in 2008. Daughter of former major league infielder Alan Wiggins, Candice became the all-team leading scorer in Stanford basketball history when she overtook Kate Starbird early in 2008. Her rookie year with the Lynx was hampered by injuries, but she was named WNBA Rookie of the Month in June 2008. Zierden, an assistant to Timberwolves Coach Flip Saunders and the former head coach at his alma mater, Minneapolis DeLaSalle, became the Lynx's fifth head coach in December 2006.
