Minnesota women’s basketball coach Lindsay Whalen, a former Olympian and WNBA star, is recruiting two of the WPIAL’s top rising sophomores.

North Allegheny’s Jasmine Timmerson and Indiana’s Eve Fiala each added a Gophers offer Friday. The two are AAU teammates on the Western Pa. Bruins, who competed last weekend at a Hoosier Heat event in Indianapolis.

This was the second Big Ten offer for each.

Timmerson is a 5-foot-7 point guard with offers from Duquesne, Robert Morris, Michigan State and Niagara. Fiala, a 6-4 center, also holds offers from Pitt and Ohio State.

Minnesota went 16-15 overall last season, 5-13 in the Big Ten in Whalen’s second season. As a player, Whalen won two Olympic gold medals (2012, ’16), two World Championships (2010, ’14) and was a four-time WNBA champion.

She retired from playing in 2018.
