August 5, 2018

UNCASVILLE, Conn. (AP) — Jasmine Thomas scored a career-high 30 points, including five 3-pointers, to help the Connecticut Sun cruise to a 109-88 win over the Las Vegas Aces on Sunday.

The game was the first for the Aces after they decided not to play in Washington on Friday night because of travel woes that took the team nearly 26 hours to get to D.C. That game was canceled and the teams are still waiting for the league to decide what to do with the game.

Connecticut set the franchise’s single-game record with 46 made field goals.

Chiney Ogwumike added 15 points while Betnijah Laney and Morgan Tuck scored 10 apiece for the Sun (16-12), who have won four in a row.

Thomas scored 20 points before Connecticut took a 64-49 lead into the break. The Sun set season highs for points, field goals (26) and field-goal percentage (68.4) in the first half. The Sun’s 64 first-half points set the franchise record for points in a half and their 109 total points were one shy of the team record.

A’ja Wilson led Las Vegas (12-15) with 24 points. Kelsey Plum scored 21, including a career-high tying five 3-pointers, and Kayla McBride added 17 points.
