UNCASVILLE, Conn. — The Connecticut Sun made history on Tuesday night by defeating the winless Washington Mystics 76-59, marking their ninth straight win to start the season. This victory also solidified their spot as the seventh team in WNBA history to achieve such a remarkable feat.

DeWanna Bonner led the charge for the Sun with 20 points and eight rebounds, while Brionna Jones contributed 15 points to the winning effort. The team’s dominant performance not only showcased their skill and teamwork but also highlighted their determination to succeed in the league.

With this win, Connecticut (9-0) is now on the path to potentially becoming the fourth team in WNBA history to start with a 10-0 record. Their upcoming game against New York will be a true test of their strength and consistency as they aim to make their mark in the league’s record books.

On the other hand, the Washington Mystics (0-9) faced yet another setback with their franchise-record ninth consecutive loss to start the season. Despite their efforts, they were unable to match the Sun’s intensity and fell short once again. However, with a home game against Chicago on the horizon, they have an opportunity to turn their season around and showcase their resilience.

Key players such as Tyasha Harris and Alyssa Thomas made significant contributions to Connecticut’s victory, while rookie Aaliyah Edwards impressed with a season-high 14 points for Washington. The game was a testament to the talent and determination of both teams as they battled it out on the court.

The Sun’s strong third-quarter performance, outscoring the Mystics 26-10, proved to be the turning point of the game. Washington struggled to find their rhythm, resulting in a season-low point total and ultimately sealing their fate in the matchup.

As the WNBA season continues to unfold, all eyes will be on the Connecticut Sun as they strive to maintain their winning streak and make their mark in the league’s history books. With each game, they are proving to be a force to be reckoned with and a team to watch out for in the quest for the championship title.
