The Connecticut Sun were not
fazed by arguably the most anticipated WNBA debut of all time as
they beat the Indiana Fever with ease, 91-72, in the WNBA’s season
opener on Tuesday night.

The Sun were about business
against highly-touted rookie Caitlin Clark to rout the Fever.
Veteran Alyssa Thomas put up a triple-double of 13 points, 10
rebounds, and 13 assists as she carved up the defense of the young
Fever featuring back-to-back no.1 picks in Clark and Aliyah

Clark, this year’s top overall
selection in the draft and the NCAA’s all-time leading scorer in
history, scored 20 points on 5-15 shooting from the field including
4-11 from distance. However, she committed 10 turnovers in her
first taste of pro basketball.

36-year-old vet DeWanna Bonner
led the Sun in scoring with 20 points while teammates DiJonai
Carrington and Tyasha Harris added 16 apiece in a balanced attack
for Connecticut.

Up next for Clark is a showdown
between Sabrina Ionescu and the New York Liberty in her home debut
at Indiana on Thursday.
