A few links

Here are the links to the stories that ran today and will run in tomorrow's Bulletin.

(1) WNBA Draft recap
(2) UConn: Swanier goes to Sun, Houston to Lynx (by Joe Perez)
(3) Draft lacks surprises, drama

And today's ...

(1) With additions, Sun retool more than reload for 2008

Sun Gm Chris Sienko the team is largely in place with training camp now nine days away. Connecticut may add another non-drafted college player before hand, but for right now, here is the team's roster in full (including players signed to training camp contracts):

Jolene Anderson (G)
Natalie Berglin (G)
Jamie Carey (G)
Cori Chambers (G)
Lauren Ervin (F)
Jessica Foley (G)
Tracy Gahan (G)
Kerri Gardin (F)
Sandrine Gruda (C)
Kamesha Hairston (F)
Amber Holt (F)
Asjha Jones (F)
Evanthia Maltsi (G/F)
Tamika Raymond (F)
Ketia Swanier (G)
Barbara Turner (G/F)
Lindsay Whalen (G)
Tamika Whitmore (F)

If I had to guess right now who the starting lineup would be, I would go with the following: PG Lindsay Whalen, SG Kamesha Hairston, SF Asjha Jones, PF Tamika Whitmore, C Sandrine Gruda. Of course, a lot can happen between now and training camp, and this is obviously a big lineup. You could put Holt in there as well, perhaps in place of Hairston or Gruda, with Whitmore and Asjha Jones comprising the frontcourt.

Also, single-game tickets went on sale Thursday. Call 1-877-SUN-TIXXX or go to the Sun's Web site.
