Fullcourt invited players from around the WNBA to blog periodically throughout the 2014 season. In Sun rookie Alyssa Thomas' first entry, she talks about the transition from college to professional basketball.
When I get asked about how I am adjusting to the WNBA, I guess the easiest thing would be to point to a couple of recent games.
The other night against Chicago, I had the best game of my rookie season in the WNBA. I finished with career-highs of 23 points and 11 rebounds. A few nights later, I had six points and two rebounds against San Antonio.
Along with the Fourth of the July holiday will come some top-flight action in the WNBA this week. Here are two of the games to add to your "must-watch" list; unfortunately, neither game is scheduled to be televised outside the local markets, but both will be available via the WNBA's Live Access:
Coming Up this Week: June 30-July 6
Chicago Sky @ Phoenix Mercury, Wednesday, July 2, 10 p.m. EST (Live Access)
Fullcourt invited players from around the WNBA to blog periodically throughout the 2014 season. Today, Mystics rookies Stefanie Dolson and Bria Hartley - who were also roommates at UConn - check in together.

Washington, DC (SportsNetwork.com) - Danielle Robinson scored six of her 15
