Monday night at the Mohegan Sun Arena, the UConn All-Americans began playing totally different roles as professionals in the WNBA. But here’s the best news: They will do it together.

Dolson was the sixth overall pick in the first round by the Washington Mystics, where she will play for former Connecticut Sun coach Mike Thibault.

And right behind her was Hartley, selected seventh by the Seattle Storm, where she thought she would be tutored by former UConn All-American Sue Bird.

But during the second round, the Storm dealt Hartley to the Mystics along with Tianna Hawkins for forward Crystal Langhorne

“It’s going to be so wonderful to be able play with Bria again after playing for so long with her,” Dolson said.

“I agree,” Hartley said. “We’ve grown together [at UConn]. We were freshmen together and now we are going to the pros together.”
