The Sun are back in the WNBA playoffs.
Only this time, Connecticut won’t have to cope with two pesky single-elimination rounds.
The Sun locked up a double-bye to start the 2019 postseason with a whopping 102-72 victory Wednesday over the Dallas Wings at Mohegan Sun Arena. Although seeding has yet to be decided, Connecticut can finish no lower than the No. 2 seed in the Eastern Conference.
Tickets for Games 1 and 2 of the Sun’s semifinal series go on sale Thursday at noon, according to the team. Game 1 of the series is slated for Sept. 17 at Mohegan Sun Arena, with Game 2 set for Sept. 19.
This is Connecticut’s first trip to the semifinals since 2012. The Sun have been eliminated from the playoffs during the single-elimination rounds two years in a row, but that trend is now guaranteed to change.
The WNBA playoffs begin Sept. 11.
