Be A Fan

The locker room was abuzz, but it had nothing to do the Sun’s fourth victory this season.
With a TV showing the end of New York’s dramatic home win over Los Angeles, Connecticut’s players were fixated on the screen as the final moments of regulation ticked away. When Catherine Kraayeveld hit the game-tying 3 with three seconds to play the locker room exploded with noise.
Katie Douglas jumped out of her seat to declare, ‘I feel like I’m at the Garden.’
It was a nice scene, a snap shot of what this league means to its players.
As she field questions about the Sun’s victory, Nykesha Sales was directing other media members out of the TV’s view to keep up with the game’s final moments. Always focused on her team, she was confused why teammates were cheering for the Liberty’s shot considering they are supposed to be a conference rival.
On a day the league’s 10th anniversary season was celebrated at Mohegan Sun Arena, the players of Connecticut found a perfect way to cap the day.
