The Connecticut Sun are rolling into the second half of the WNBA season on a high note.
While Jonquel Jones continues to make her case for league MVP, DeWanna Bonner has also been having a season of her own.
That includes last night’s game, in which Bonner dropped a double-double to lead the Sun past the Minnesota Lynx 82-71.
