CT Sun Etched In WNBA History With Same Starting Five In 37 Straight Games


The Sun etched themselves into WNBA history before Sunday night’s game against the Los Angeles Sparks even began.

Connecticut now has gone 37 straight games with the same five starters: Courtney Williams (PG), Jasmine Thomas (SG), Shekinna Stricklen (SF), Alyssa Thomas (PF) and Jonquel Jones (C). And this puts this year’s No. 2 seed among some elite company.

The Sun now are among 11 other teams in WNBA history that have gone with the same starting five in at least 37 games, according to Across the Timeline. Nine of those teams won the WNBA championship, while all 11 made it to the Finals in their respective seasons.

The league record is 42-straight games, which has been accomplished by three teams: the 2006 Detroit Shock, the 2009 Phoenix Mercury and the 2016 Sparks.
