Jones, Sun prepared to face Sparks in WNBA semifinals

NASSAU, BAHAMAS- Jonquel Jones and the Connecticut Sun look to kick their Women’s National Basketball Association (WNBA) semi-final series against the Los Angeles Sparks off on a high note tonight.

Jones and the Sun dropped the regular season series 2-1 to the Sparks, but now has a prime chance to take the early advantage in the series and put pressure on L.A. to respond with a win.

The Sun are the only team in the league to finish in the top four each of the last three seasons, winning 65 games over that span. However, they haven’t been able to convert that into postseason success; something Jones hopes they can change this year.

“We expect to win it all, that’s our expectation,” said Jones, who was named to the WNBA’s All-Defensive First Team last week. “Everything else is, I don’t even know the word. It doesn’t matter. We just want to win.”

The Sun will take on the Sparks at home beginning a 6:30 p.m. at the Mohegan Sun Arena.
