Anete Jekabsone-Zogota and Kara Lawson each have six points and the Sun lead the Washington Mystics, 31-28, at the half here at Mohegan Sun Arena despite shooting 31.3 percent form the field.
The Sun are talking and switching well on defense, and the combination of Jekabsone-Zogota, Tan White and even for a short time, Allison Hightower, has frustrated the league's leading scorer, Monique Currie (one point on 0-for-5 shooting). As a team, Washington isn't shooting much better than the Sun (35.7 percent) and has as many turnovers as Connecticut (eight).
Kelsey Griffin, starting in place of DeMya Walker (for matchup reasons most likely), has three points but also three fouls and only played seven minutes.
Also, a quick update from the All-Star voting. Of the 60 players on the ballot (fans can also write-in players), five Sun players are included: Tina Charles, Jekabsone-Zogota, Asjha Jones, Lawson and Renee Montgomery.
