White Signs Contract With Sun

UNCASVILLE, Conn. (February 23, 2010) The Connecticut Sun announced today that veteran guard Tan White has been signed to a one-year contract.

As per team policy, no terms were released.

"I thought as the season went on, she got more confident playing in our system," head coach Mike Thibault said. "Her outside shooting and her ability to run on the break will fit in well with this group. I think her defense has been somewhat underrated in the past, and she made great strides in that area last season. She will be an integral part of our team moving forward, and I'm excited to have her back."

Signed as a free agent last June 19th after she was waived by the Indiana Fever, White led the team with a career-high 49 made three-pointers while averaging 9.5 points in 30 games.

The Connecticut Sun will open its eighth season at Mohegan Sun Arena on Saturday, May 15th by hosting the Chicago Sky at 3:30 p.m. Season tickets and mini-plans are on sale now, and can be reserved by calling a Sun Ticket Representative at 1.877.SUN.TIXX (786-8499) or by visiting www.connecticutsun.com.
