Sun rises on Courtney Williams' pro career

Former USF star Courtney Williams (right), vying for a loose ball against Dallas' Erin Phillips, has found a new lease on her WNBA life with the Connecticut Sun.


Technically, she made her professional debut on May 14 in Minneapolis. But the Courtney Williams familiar to Bulls fans didn't truly hit the WNBA scene until the evening of July 2.

Having been traded to the Connecticut Sun from Phoenix only a week before, Williams watched from a College Park Center bench as host Dallas built a 13-2 lead. Unable to stomach what was transpiring any longer, Sun coach Curt Miller opted for a wholesale substitution, supplanting the quintent on the floor with five off the bench.

Williams was among those who entered. What proceeded wasn't necessarily pretty, but it provided the spark Miller was seeking. Five minutes into the second quarter, Connecticut had rallied for a 26-25 lead, with Williams providing five points and six rebounds.

The Sun would hold on for an 86-83 triumph.
