Sun-Fever starters for Game 1

Here are tonight’s starting lineups. Note that Asjha Jones (sprained right ankle) is in, as expected, but the Fever decided not to start Tamika Catchings (partially torn plantar fascia). Both Catchings and Indiana coach Brian Winters said she would play tonight, though Winters opted to go with the lineup he has over the last few weeks. That means Tan White, a candidate for Sixth Player of the Year, is starting and former starter Tamika Whitmore will remain in her reserve role, where she’s been very effective.

No. 3 Connecticut Sun:
Forward – Asjha Jones
Forward – Nykesha Sales
Center – Margo Dydek
Guard – Lindsay Whalen
Guard – Katie Douglas

No. 2 Indiana Fever:
Forward – Anna DeForge
Forward – Ebony Hoffman
Center – Tammy Sutton-Brown
Guard – Tan White
Guard – Tully Bevilaqua

The Sun swept the season series against Indiana and have won 15 of the last 20 meetings between the two teams.
