The Sun have made another strong run in the regular season to get the coveted double-bye in the Playoffs. The season had some ups-and-downs, but perhaps their most important record was with the consistency in their lineups.
Connecticut this season became just the fourth team to feature the same starting lineup through an entire regular season (1998 New York Liberty, 1999 Orlando Miracle, and 2010 New York Liberty) and just the second to do so in a 34-game season (2010 Liberty).
Curt Miller made some big moves up the coaching leader boards, leaping up to 18th all-time with 79 regular season wins.
In the final game of the season, Shekinna Stricklen drilled a pair of threes against the Fever to bring her season total to 76, passing up Kara Lawson in 2012 (74) and establishing a new franchise season record.
As a team, the Sun established several new franchise records:
- On August 16, Connecticut had 19 steals against the Storm, establishing a new franchise single-game record.
- They also recorded the most steals in a season as the Connecticut Sun (303), beating their 2004 total of 299.
- Their 8.9 steals per game average is also the best season mark in Connecticut.
- They added 10 more three-point attempts this season from 2018, establishing a new franchise record with 713 total. Their average of 21.0 was also a franchise record.
Along the way, the Sun’s starting lineup reached some big milestones:
- Alyssa Thomas recorded her 2,000th point and 1,000th rebound.
- Jonquel Jones got her 1,000th rebound.
- Jasmine Thomas dished her 1,000th assist, moving up to 21st all-time in that category.
- Stricklen scored her 2,000th point and made her 400th three-pointer in the process, moving up to 19th all-time in made threes.
- Courtney Williams scored her 1,000th point.
