McCray Shines in Second Pro Start for the Sun

July 19, 2011


In only her second WNBA start for the Connecticut Sun, former Kansas women’s basketball All-American Danielle McCray went 6-for-8 from behind the arc, while netting a team-high 22 points in 26 minutes at Mohegan Sun Arena Sunday afternoon.

The Olathe, Kan., product set career highs in six statistical categories, including points, minutes played and three-pointers converted, as her team defeated the Indiana Fever 76-71.

McCray scored five points and grabbed three rebounds in 17 minutes of play during her first career start, just two nights earlier on July 15 at Madison Square Garden against the New York Liberty.

The first 11 games of the 2011 season McCray spent coming off the bench, as she managed to reach double figures in scoring once, a 14-point outing, which she scored on opening night against Washington on June 4.

For the year, the 5-foot-11 forward/guard is averaging 5.2 points per game for Connecticut, with a little less than two assists during 13.2 minutes of play. McCray’s next game is at home on Tuesday, July 19 versus the Liberty.
