Senior Theairra Taylor of the Iowa women’s basketball team has been invited to the Minnesota Lynx summer camp.

Taylor, a native of St. Paul, Minn., averaged 12.4 points per game while playing for Iowa this past season. After undergoing three knee injuries in 20 months, Taylor started the last 70 games of her Hawkeye career; she also played in the last 101 games over the last three seasons.

“I went to the Nashville overseas combine and played well,” Taylor said in a press release. “A few people there took notice, and I was invited to the Minnesota Lynx summer camp. I feel blessed to have the opportunity.”

In the Hawkeyes’ 2013-14 season, Taylor was co-captain of the team. She started all 36 games and helped lead Iowa to 27 wins — the second-highest total in program history. She also earned Iowa’s Coaches Award and Iowa’s Big Ten Sportsmanship Award nomination.

“I am very happy for Theairra,” Iowa head coach Lisa Bluder said in a press release. “This is a great opportunity to showcase her abilities for the WNBA, and what better place to do it than your hometown?”
