UConn players shine in WNBA matinee

An afternoon game televised locally on MSG and on NBA TV in other parts of the country turned into a showcase for a pair of former UConn stars.

Tiffany Hayes had 27 points (going 10 for 10 from the foul line) and 11 rebounds as the Atlanta Dream defeated the New York Liberty 85-79 to improve to 3-1.

Tina Charles had a game-high 29 points (going 13 for 24 from the floor) to go with 10 rebounds, six assists, seven steals and two blocked shots for the Liberty. Kiah Stokes finished with five points, seven rebounds and two blocked shots. Shortly before the game started it was announced that Swin Cash returned to the team. She was one of the last cuts but obviously the team figured out a way to bring her back and remain under the salary cap. She had six points and two rebounds in 14 minutes.

Former Connecticut Sun forward Elizabeth Williams had 16 points, eight rebounds, two assists and four steals and former Hillhouse star Bria Holmes added seven points, one rebound and one steal for Atlanta.

UConn might have won the National Championship in Maya Moore's senior season, and might have played in the NC game the following season, if Tiffany Hayes was playing like she does for Atlanta Dream.

Geno Auriemma basically said that KML would have a good career if her WNBA team was a good fit for her skill set. Atlanta has been a good fit for Tiff.

I wonder if Bria Hartley will have as good a WNBA career as Tiff.
