WNBA preseason tourney to feature local stars

When the WNBA announced the four preseason games being played at Mohegan Sun Arena on May. 4 & 5, I'm not even sure I put it in my blog.

Well, after Thursday night's draft definitely added some juice to that event since former UConn star Moriah Jefferson and former Hillhouse star Bria Holmes could play their first WNBA games in Connecticut.

The first of the four games will feature Jefferson's San Antonio team playing Holmes' Atlanta squad at 5 p.m. on May 4 followed by the new-look Connecticut Sun squaring off with the Chicago Sky at (about) 7 p.m. as Morgan Tuck will be one of the three first-round picks set to debut for the Sun.

The next day Atlanta and Chicago play at 5 p.m. while San Antonio and Connecticut wrap up the four games in two days at approximately 7 p.m.

Breanna Stewart is set to make her WNBA debut at 2:30 p.m. on May 4 when the Seattle Storm host the Phoenix Mercury.

Stewart will return to Connecticut on June 10 when the Storm play at Mohegan Sun Arena
