Connecticut Sun Loses To Chicago 86-77

Feather News

The Connecticut Sun basketball team lost to Chicago on Tuesday night by a score of 86-77, the team's first regular season loss this season at the Mohegan Sun Arena and a loss that knocks the Sun (8-4) out of first place in the Eastern Conference standings.

The Sun's next game will be on Friday night against Phoenix at the Mohegan Sun Arena. The Sun won't play at the Mohegan Sun Arena for almost a month after Friday's game due to six consecutive games on the road and a break for a game between the WNBA's All-Stars and the U.S. Basketball Women’s National Team which will be held on July 10 at the Mohegan Sun Arena.

The players for the WNBA All-Star Team will be voted in by fans however if those same players are on the Women's National Team, then they will play for the Women's National Team which is coached by UConn's Geno Auriemma.

The Feather News is referring to the WNBA team as an All-Star Team but that is not its official name because many of the stars will be playing on the national team coached by Auriemma.

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