Kara Lawson has 11 points, thanks to some well-time 3-pointers and Tan White was the best player on the floor for the Sun, who slopped their way to a 33-27 halftime lead over the New York Liberty.
White scored nine points, providing a lift offensively early when the Sun looked lost on their own end. She also added five rebounds, mostly on hustle plays, and helped hold Cappie Pondexter to two first-half points on 1-of-6 shooting.
Former UConn star Kalana Greene has six points as the Liberty's first person off the bench.
It was a pretty half by no means. The Liberty shot 32.4 percent from the floor and committed nine turnover. The Sun, thanks to a second-quarter push, managed 42.4 percent, but there were several head-scratching moments early.
Asjha Jones, making her first start of the season, missed the only shot she attempted and has zero points and one rebound in seven minutes.
