Mahoney Making Moves

The race to secure the final spots on the Connecticut Sun’s roster is too close to call. But if there’s one player who has made the job of coach Mike Thibault a little bit more difficult, it is likely Megan Mahoney.
One day after missing the last stretch of practice because of a vicious fall to the ground — another player also fell on her back — Mahoney was back at it on Wednesday. Toughness, both mental and physical, is a phrase coaches often throw around, and Mahoney clearly has it.
She has looked very good so far in training camp. Mahoney possesses the ability to get to the basket and she also has an effective shot from outside. After seeing some time at point guard early on, it seems like more of her practice minutes are coming at shooting guard, a position she looks quite comfortable at.
Like Mahoney said the other day, staying healthy is the biggest concern right. If that takes places, don’t be surprised to see Mahoney earn a spot when the cuts are made May 19.
