WNBA Camps Opening

by Categorized: Connecticut Sun, Lindsay Whalen, Maya Moore, Mohegan Sun Arena, WNBA Date:

Good afternoon everyone. We are getting ready to transition into summer basketball here and that means the start of WNBA training camp for the Connecticut Sun.

The Sun hold media day Tuesday from 4-6 p.m. on the floor of the Mohegan Sun Arena, where the bullriders were last weekend. Hopefully, the mess has been cleaned up – if you know what I mean.

Every Sun player is expected to attend media day except Mistie Mims, the free agent post formerly known as Mistie Bass. She is still playing overseas.

Immediately after media day, the Sun will open the doors to the arena so the fans can pour in an watch the team scrimmage until 7. Admission is free.

The season begins with a preseason game against the Minnesota Lynx, the defending league champs, on May 7 at the casino. That means a chance to see Olympians Maya Moore and Lindsay Whalen and the first pro game of rookie Devereaux Peters of Notre Dame, a Minny draft pick.
