The Connecticut Sun lost 66-63 to the Las Vegas Aces in Game 5 of the WNBA Semi-Finals. Despite the loss ending the season for the Sun, it does not diminish what the team accomplished all season.
The Sun finished their season 10-12, good for 2nd place, behind the Chicago Sky (12-10) in the Eastern Conference. The Sun started 0-5, then 1-6, before winning 9 of their final 15 to clinch a 7th seed in the WNBA playoffs.
In the post-game presser, Coach Curt Miller and players Alyssa Thomas, Jasmine Thomas and DeWanna Bonner talked about the team, the season and the fans. They were obviously and understandably disappointed, but they were positive about the season and the future. They were a classy bunch all season right to the end.
In a season away from their home, secluded in Florida, filled with pandemic worries and social issues, the Sun pulled together and had an exciting season. They should be proud of their efforts and achievements.
I want to thank Coach Miler, the players, the entire organization and especially PR Manager Annette Hogan for the access all season. It was a lot of fun covering this team.
