Christina Foggie was doing her normal thing Monday night. But this time, she was doing it on a whole new level.
Making her debut for the Minnesota Lynx on Monday night during their exhibition game against the Australian National team, Foggie scored nine points and pulled down four rebounds to help the defending WNBA champs roll to an 82-66 victory.
Foggie -- the all-time leader in 3-pointers in Vanderbilt women's history -- knocked down a pair of 3s and finished 3-of-7 from the floor while logging 14 minutes of playing time.
"Tonight's game was a lot of fun," Foggie told vucommodores.com shortly after the game. "It was competitive and I was really grateful for the opportunity to play."
Foggie adapted well to the game's pace, and did not commit a turnover.
"The speed of the game was faster than college, but a week of training camp really prepared me for it," she said.
Foggie was a second-round pick (and the 24th overall selection) in last month's draft after completing a record-setting career at Vanderbilt in March. Foggie led the SEC in scoring this season, averaging a career-high 19 points per game, and climbed to No. 7 on the Commodores' career scoring list (1,743 points).
Later this week, the Lynx are flying Foggie home to participate in Vanderbilt's graduation ceremonies.
