A new reign?

The Sun and Sacramento Monarchs tip off in moments. With Seattle's 87-72 loss at San Antonio earlier in the day, Connecticut can stand alone with the league's best record and improve to 3-0 for the first time as a franchise.

Some basics for tonight's game, which isn't being televised.

Tonight's starting lineups:

Connecticut Sun
G Lindsay Whalen
G Amber Holt
F Kerri Gardin
F Asjha Jones
C Tamika Whitmore

Sacramento Monarchs
G Ticha Penicheiro
G Kara Lawson
F Rebekkah Brunson
F Nicole Powell
C Adrian Williams-Strong

Officials: Lamont Simpson, Tom Mauer, Kevin Sparrock.

Today's preview wasn't post online, but rookie Sandrine Gruda won't be in attendance tonight. Sun coach Mike Thibault said her plane from France is scheduled to touch down in Hartford sometime around 10 p.m., and the 6-foot-4 forward will practice with the team Monday in preparation for Tuesday's game against the Indiana Fever.

Check back here around 8 p.m. for a halftime update.
