MINNEAPOLIS The Minnesota Lynx announced the team's final roster Wednesday, after the WNBA squad waived guard Queralt Casas and forward Julie Wojta. Highlighting Minnesota's 11-player roster are three Olympians -- guardforward Seimone Augustus, forward Maya Moore, and guard Lindsay Whalen. The final roster also includes 2011 WNBA all-star Rebekkah Brunson, as well as veteran Taj McWilliams-Franklin. Also returning from last year's squad is guard Candice Wiggins, guardforward Monica Wright, forward Amber Harris and center Jessica Adair. The two new faces on this year's Lynx club are forward Devereaux Peters, a forward from Notre Dame, and veteran guard Erin Thorn. The team returns nine total players from its championship-winning roster in 2011. Minnesota opens its regular season Sunday, at home against Phoenix. Tip-off is set for 11:30 a.m., and the Lynx will receive their 2011 WNBA title rings prior to the contest.
