Sun Players Make Successful International Debuts

While most of the Connecticut Sun players competing overseas have yet to play a game, some teams have opened their seasons.

On Wednesday, Jonquel Jones had her first game as a member of UMMC Ekaterinburg, collecting a team-high 19 points in a 107-28 Russian League victory over Spartak Noginsk. Jones was 4 of 4 from the field with three made threes and also had four rebounds.

Also making her debut with a new international team Wednesday, Alyssa Thomas had eight points, eight rebounds, four steals and three assists for ZVVZ USK Praha in a 107-48 Czech Republic league victory over BK Lokomotiva Trutnov.
