Feather News

The Connecticut Sun beat Chicago yesterday in their first game of the WNBA regular season by a score of 74-61.

Attendance was reported to be 8,072 at the Mohegan Sun Arena.

The Connecticut Sun, owned by the Mohegan Tribal Gaming Authority, announced last week that it signed coach Mike Thibault to a two-year contract extension through the 2012 season with a team option for a third year. Thibault is the only coach in the team's history, beginning in 2003 when the franchise relocated from Orlando. The terms of Thibault's contract were not released.

The Sun's next game is at Atlanta on Friday followed by a home game against Washington on Sunday, May 23.
