The Connecticut Sun remain unbeaten through the first nine games of their 2024 season.

Their historic streak continued with a lopsided victory over the Washington Mystics on Tuesday night. After a tightly contested first half, Connecticut pulled away in the third quarter when it outscored Washington 26-10. The team held on in the final frame to earn a 76-59 victory.

Sun star DeWanna Bonner led the way with a game-high 20 points and eight rebounds. Brionna Jones added 15 points on 6-of-8 shooting.

The Sun are the seventh team in WNBA history to start a season 9-0. Each of the previous six teams reached the WNBA Finals. Connecticut is four wins away from tying the best start in league history at 13-0, set by the Minnesota Lynx in 2016.

On the other side, Washington set a franchise record with nine straight losses to start a season.
