Connecticut Sun open 2014 season on May 16

The WNBA released its schedule for the upcoming season and the Connecticut Sun will kick off the season with a home game against the New York Liberty on May. 16 before playing four of the next five games on the road.

The only home game during that span will come against the Seattle Storm, featuring former UConn star Sue Bird. Tiffany Hayes and the Atlanta Dream come to Mohegan Sun Arena on June 1, Diana Taurasi and the Phoenix Mercury will be in Connecticut on June 12 while a visit by Maya Moore and the Minnesota Lynx on July 27 is another anticipated home game.

The Sun figure to look a little bit different from the squad which limped to the worst record in the WNBA. The Sun have the No. 1 overall pick but will not have the services of perennial All-Star forward Asjha Jones, who suffered a torn Achilles playing overseas. With the news that Magic Johnson is part of a group which purchased the Los Angeles Sparks, there is no more talk of Candace Parker or Nneka Ogwumike landing in Connecticut in a dispersal draft.

The Washington Post has a story on UConn Class of 2015 recruiting target De'Janae Boykin and her relationship with her legally blind brother (written by Yale graduate Chelsea Janes) that I would strongly recommend checking out.

Speaking of Boykin, he father told me that they are flying in on Saturday night and planning to be in attendance at Sunday's game against Louisville.
