Sun add to guard competition

The Sun have invited another guard to training camp. University of Tennessee at Chattanooga guard Laura Hall will vie for a roster spot when camp opens on Sunday, though she hasn't officially signed a contract yet, Sun coach Mike Thibault said.

The name may sound vaguely familiar to Connecticut fans who visited the Arena at Harbor Yard last month. Hall scored 19 points in her team's final game, an NCAA tournament loss to Kansas State in Bridgeport on March 23.

Thibault called Hall Monday afternoon with the offer.

"It did not take long at all for me to say yes to that," Hall told the Chattanooga Times Free Press Monday night. "It was just a shock. I thought there was a possibility my career was done ... but at the same time thought maybe I could play somewhere, maybe overseas."

Hall scored 7.8 points per game this past season, but came on strong late to average 16.4 points in her final five games.
