Connecticut Signs Hiedeman

It was announced today that Connecticut has signed Natisha Hiedeman to return to the Sun in 2020.

Per team policy, no details were released.

Hiedeman graduated from Marquette University in 2019 and was drafted 18th overall in the 2019 WNBA Draft. She is the highest draft pick to come out of Marquette of any other basketball player as well as in the BIG East conference, since the realignment.

In her rookie campaign, Hiedeman appeared in 20 games for the Sun averaged 3.7 points per game, 1.9 assists per game and 1.5 rebounds per game. She tallied a career high 10 points against Atlanta on July 10 and a career high nine assists against Dallas on Sept. 4. Additionally, Hiedeman saw action in seven of the Sun’s eight playoff games. She posted a playoff-high eight points against both Los Angeles and Washington.

“We are excited to have Natisha back with us for the 2020 season,” head coach and general manager Curt Miller said. “She thrived late in the year and provided us an outstanding spark as our back-up point guard. She is an excellent passer and natural scorer with range. We expect her to have a big impact on the upcoming season.”
