Sun basks in the glow of winning

KELSEY Griffin and the Connecticut Sun have bounced back from a horror start to their WNBA season, winning three of their last four matches.

Playing against Phoenix Mercury on Friday morning local time, the Bendigo Spirit star came off the bench and helped her side hold off a late charge by their opponents, hanging on to win by a point.

Mercury boasted a strong Australian influence, as it was coached by retired champion Sandy Brondello and included Opals Erin Phillips and Penny Taylor.

Griffin earned praise from her coach for her role in Sun's victory over Indiana Fever last weekend, when she stepped up after her side found itself in foul trouble.

Connecticut now has a 4-6 record after dropping the opening three games.
