Here's a start

Tip-off is near here in Madison Square Garden for the Sun-Liberty showdown, and though no official starting lineups have been provided to the media yet, here’s a guess at the Sun’s:

Connecticut Sun (18-14)
Guard – Lindsay Whalen
Guard – Katie Douglas
Forward – Kristen Rasmussen
Forward – Nykesha Sales
Center – Erika de Souza

Notes: Sun coach Mike Thibault said Thursday that Rasmussen is expected to replace the injured Asjha Jones (ankle) in the starting five. But he may also go with de Souza, who started Connecticut’s last game against New York in place of Margo Dydek. New York center Janel McCarville, who plays more like a small or power forward in a center’s body, creates huge match-up problems for Dydek. The 7-foot-2 center was limited to a combined six minutes in the last two games against the Liberty.
