Connecticut Sun History
The WNBA franchise known as the Connecticut Sun began as the Orlando Miracle as a part
of the expansion of the league in 1999. The Miracle played as the sister team of the Orlando Magic, but soon after the WNBA
released their ownership of the individual franchises, the owners of the Miracle sold the rights to the franchise to the Mohegan
Tribe. The Mohegan Sun made history by becoming the first professional sports franchise to be owned by a Native American Tribe.
The Tribe moved the franchise to Connecticut, one of the hottest spots in the country for women's basketball, thanks to the
illustrious history of the University of Connecticut Lady Huskies.
Now based in Uncasville, Connecticut, the re-branded
Sun began overhauling their roster in the hopes of bringing the Sun to the top of the ranks of the WNBA. One strategy was
to draft hometown heroes, signing former Huskies like center Rebecca Lobo. The current Sun roster features four ex-Connecticut
Huskies, adding to the thrill for local fans. Since the move, the team has found much success, yet are still chasing their
first WNBA championship. Still, Sun fans know that a title is sure to be right around the corner as the franchise continues
to bring talented teams to town, giving fans plenty of reasons for optimism heading into another exciting season of basketball.
