Sun, CPTV Sports Partner Again in 2013

UNCASVILLE, Conn. (May 24, 2013) – The Connecticut Sun announced today it will partner again with CPTV Sports, reaching an agreement that will result in the broadcast of at least 18 home and away Sun games in 2013.

The first broadcast will be the home opener at Mohegan Sun Arena on Saturday, May 25th at 7 p.m., when the Sun host the New York Liberty. Veteran Sun broadcaster Bob Heussler will handle the play-by-play duties again, working with Rebecca Lobo or Kara Wolters on select telecasts.

Led by WNBA MVP Tina Charles, veteran star Kara Lawson and a group of emerging young talent, the Sun will be shooting for their first WNBA Championship under first-year head coach Anne Donovan.
