Sun Announce 2018 Schedule

UNCASVILLE, Conn. (February 8, 2018) – The Connecticut Sun will tip off its 16th season in the state by leading off #WNBAAllDay on Sunday, May 20th at 1 p.m.

A 21-win playoff team in 2017, the Sun will look to start fast, taking on 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. That is followed by the Los Angeles Sparks on May 24th at 7 p.m. on ESPN2 and the Indiana Fever on May 26th, also at 7 p.m. Nine of 17 home games at Mohegan Sun Arena will be played on either a Friday, Saturday or Sunday.

“We are excited about the release of the schedule and certainly pleased that we begin the year with three straight home games in May,” Sun Head Coach and General Manager Curt Miller said. “We are so fortunate to play in front of an incredible and supportive fan base. We look forward to building on the momentum we established last year.”

Highlights of the home schedule include two visits from Maya Moore and the defending champion Minnesota Lynx – on June 9th at 2 p.m. and August 17th at 7 p.m. – and a game against Diana Taurasi and the Phoenix Mercury on July 13th at 7 p.m. Sue Bird, Brianna Stewart and the Seattle Storm are at Mohegan Sun Arena on July 20th at 7 p.m. The Sun will host Washington at home on June 13th on ESPN2 at 7 p.m.

The Sun will be tested by lengthy stretches away from home in June and July. The first trip includes visits to Chicago (6/1), Washington (6/3), Atlanta (6/5) and New York (6/7). There is also a span of five straight road games starting with a back-to-back at Seattle (6/15) and Phoenix (6/16) and closing with a game at Washington on June 26 followed by a home game at Indiana on June 27. The last long road trip takes the Sun to Seattle, Los Angeles, Phoenix and Las Vegas from July 1-7.

“We will be road warriors in June and the early part of July, playing 13 out of 16 games away from home,” said Miller, who led the Sun to nine road wins last season, including victories at defending champion Minnesota and playoff participants New York, Washington and Dallas. “Overall, we are playing 34 regular season games in nearly 25 less calendar days than 2017, so it makes for extremely tough stretches of games and travel. But the positive news about the early road games is we finish with 11 of our last 15 at home, including four straight to finish the regular season.”

That closing home stand includes Chicago (8/12), Dallas (8/14) and 2017 WNBA Finalists Minnesota (8/17) and Los Angeles (8/19).
