Connecticut was the surprise team in the WNBA last year, winning 21 games while reaching the playoffs for the first time since 2012. Over the course of last season, the Sun established a reputation around the WNBA for playing fast and relentless from opening tip to final buzzer, bringing an exciting style of basketball to the league.
On Sunday at 1 p.m., the Sun have been given the honor of tipping off #WNBAAllDay, hosting the Las Vegas Aces (formerly the San Antonio Stars) as the first game on a day in which all 12 WNBA teams will be in action for the very first time. You can purchase your tickets here.
