The 0-3 Sun were trying to mark one in the win column against the visiting Storm, who came in 0-2.

The Storm started the game off with a milestone. Former UConn All-American Sue Bird set up Alysha Clark from behind the arc, and Clark hit a three-pointer to open the scoring on Bird’s 500th career assist.

After Seattle’s quick lead, the Sun settled down.

Alyssa Thomas with the quick outlet found Katie Douglas for the easy two as Connecticut led at the half, 33-27.

After three quarters, the Sun led, 54-46

In the fourth quarter, Connecticut never looked back, winning, 71-59.
