Former Maryland women’s basketball star Brionna Jones is the WNBA Eastern Conference Player of the Week after dominating performances as a forward on the Connecticut Sun.

In the past week, Jones totaled 54 points, 29 rebounds, eight steals, four assists, and made two-thirds of shots across three victories.

The first game of the week was a 76-62 win over the Aces, and the second and third games were wins over Los Angeles with scores of 76-72 and 76-61 respectively.

The Sun currently has the best overall record in the league (20-6) and has a home record of 13-1. They will face the Washington Mystics tonight (8/31) at 7 p.m. and will be looking to extend their eight-game winning streak.
