Jolene Anderson will join Lindsay Whalen, Amber Holt, Asjha Jones and Tamika Whitmore in the Sun's starting lineup tonight against the New York Liberty, replacing forward Kerri Gardin. The move gives Connecticut a smaller, more guard-oriented lineup -- Anderson is listed at 5-foot-9, Gardin at 6 feet. But the 6-foot Holt is capable of moving from the off-guard position to small forward.
New York's starters are the same as usual: Erin Thorn, Loree Moore in the backcourt and Shameka Christon, Cathrine Kraayeveld and Janel McCarville in the frontcourt.
Tonight's officials are Michael Price, Felicia Grinter and Jeffrey Smith.
The tip is about 10 minutes away. The game will be broadcast on MSG and NBA TV.
