LINCOLN — A first-round pick — to one of the best teams in the league. That’s a pro basketball deal that former Nebraska point guard Lindsey Moore will easily accept.
Moore — who set NU records for career games, starts, wins and assists — was the 12th and final pick of the first round in Monday’s WNBA draft. The team that picked her — the Minnesota Lynx — won the 2011 WNBA title and lost in the 2012 finals. The Lynx also were the highest-scoring team in the league last year.
