WNBA Draft lottery set for August 21

Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis has a chance to become
fifth UConn player to be taken No. 1 in WNBA draft
The WNBA announced that it would hold its annual draft lottery a week from today in Secaucus, New Jersey at approximately 8 p.m.

The Connecticut Sun and Tulsa Shock are the only teams guaranteed to have a spot in the lottery. Seattle would also become a lottery team if it loses one of its final two games or if San Antonio wins at least one more game. New York is currently the second Eastern Conference team out of the playoffs. Tonight's game between New York and Indiana will go a long way toward determining if the Liberty miss the playoffs. If that occurs than the Sun would have two lottery picks for the second year in a row since the Sun took Chiney Ogwumike with the No. 1 overall pick and received No. 4 pick Alyssa Thomas from New York in the trade that sent former WNBA MVP Tina Charles to the Liberty.

UConn senior wing Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis is considered to be a strong candidate to be the No. 1 overall pick in the draft.

The Sun announced a couple of promotions for its final two home games.

Tomorrow's 7 p.m. game against Washington will feature Autism Night as part of its Community Spotlight program..

There will be a silent auction on the Mohegan Sun Arena concourse during the game with proceeds to benefit the Southeastern Connecticut Walk Now For Autism Speaks.

There is a discount off the ticket price at http://tinyurl.com/mt6xozf, click on “find tickets” and enter the code word “2014.”

Also, the team announced a school supplies drive to benefit the United Way of Southeastern Connecticut during the game against the Atlanta Dream on Sunday at 1 p.m. Bins to collect school supplies will be placed inside both entrances to Mohegan Sun Arena.
