Virginia has hired former WNBA star Tina Thompson to coach its women's basketball team.
    
The 43-year-old Thompson has never been a head coach before, but she brings quite a resume to Virginia. She was the WNBA's career scoring leader until she was passed by Diana Taurasi last summer. Thompson also is a two-time Olympic gold medalist and a four-time WNBA champion. She was elected to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame this year and will be inducted in September.
    
After playing in college at Southern California, Thompson played professionally for 12 seasons in Houston, four years in Los Angeles and finished her career in Seattle in 2013.
    
Thompson replaces Joanne Boyle, who resigned after seven season to attend to a family matter.Utah Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell has a left foot contusion, and his status is uncertain for Game 2 of the Western Conference playoff series against the Oklahoma City Thunder.
    
Mitchell left Oklahoma City's 116-108 win Game 1 on Sunday after stubbing his toe in the third quarter, and he played sporadically the rest of the way. A team spokesman said Mitchell had an MRI on Monday, and the team will provide a status update on Tuesday.
    
Mitchell is one of the league's top rookies. He averaged 20.5 points, 3.7 rebounds and 3.7 assists during the regular season. He had 27 points and 10 rebounds in Game 1.
