Four (!) CT Sun Players Named To WNBA All-Defensive Teams

Jonquel Jones, Briann January, Brionna Jones and Jasmine Thomas all received the honor


Sep 26, 2021

For the first time in WNBA history, a team can brag about having four of its players make an All-Defensive team in the same season.

The Connecticut Sun claimed that honor on Sunday.

Both Jonquel Jones and Briann January were named to the All-WNBA Defensive First Team after leading the Sun to a 26-6 regular season and league-best 93.7 defensive rating.

But they had help. So much help, that Brionna Jones and Jasmine Thomas were selected to the All-Defensive Second Team.

The first team also included Brianna Turner, Brittney Skyes and Sylvia Fowles, who was named the Defensive Player of the Year.

Breanna Stewart, Brittney Griner and Ariel Atkins rounded out the second team.

Four out of 10 players being members of the Sun? Not bad.

Connecticut owns the WNBA’s No. 1 overall seed entering the playoffs and have a double-round bye entering the playoffs. They play their first postseason game on Tuesday, Sept. 28.
