Connecticut Sun Beats New York Liberty 75-68

Feather News

The Connecticut Sun basketball team beat the New York Liberty by a score of 75-68 on Friday night.

The game marked the debut of the Foxwoods logo on the New York Liberty players' jerseys, one day after it was announced that a sponsorship agreement was struck between Foxwoods and the Liberty's owners, Madison Square Garden Sports.

The WNBA Connecticut Sun team is owned by the Mohegan Tribal Gaming Authority.

The Sun is now 4-2 on the season and will next play on Sunday against San Antonio at the Mohegan Sun Arena. The game begins at 1 p.m.

It was reported that only 6,493 attended Friday night's game despite the media hype over the new Foxwoods marketing deal with the Sun's opponents.
