Feather News

The Connecticut Sun beat Atlanta last night by a score of 98-72, clinching a playoff spot as they remain in first place in the Eastern Conference. The Sun's record is 18-10, leading second place Detroit (17-11) in the Eastern Connecticut by one game.

Svetlana Abrosimova, the former UConn star who signed with the Connecticut Sun on Wednesday, did not play last night as originally expected but will make her debut tomorrow against Seattle. Connecticut Sun's addition of Abrosimova to the team makes a total of seven UConn basketball alumni on the team's roster.

The Connecticut Sun will play Seattle in the Mohegan Sun Arena tomorrow (Sunday) at 1 p.m. The game will be televised on ABC TV.
