WNBA Podcast: Can the Connecticut Sun extend their postseason run?

The Connecticut Sun have actually advanced to the WNBA semifinals 3 years in a row and revived the bulk of their lineup in 2022 en path to the very best net ranking in the league (plus-9.5) for the 2nd season running.

Heading into this year’s postseason, it appeared a fait accompli that the Sun would make it back to the last 4 for a 4th successive time, specifically because they were dealing with a Dallas Wings group missing their leading scorer, Arike Ogunbowale.

And yet, Connecticut discovers itself one video game far from removal on the heels of an outright thrashing — on its house flooring — in Game 2 on Sunday. The Sun’s normal strengths were no place to be discovered, be it developing offense off of turnovers, control of the glass, and points in the paint. The reality that they were basically noncompetitive throughout was possibly more unexpected for a group that prides itself on constant success.

To get a much better sense for whether this outcome was a one-off for Connecticut, or if the Sun remain in genuine difficulty heading into Game 3 Wednesday, I generated Lila Bromberg for today’s episode of The Whiparound.

Lila covers the Sun and the WNBA at-large for The Hartford Courant, and was on hand for the very first 2 video games of the series, so she shared some insight from the locker space about how the Connecticut gamers are feeling after 2 blowout video games. Lila likewise used a couple of secrets for the Sun in the last video game of this first-round series in addition to what to make from the group must it advance previous Dallas.
