Yesterday after the Connecticut Sun practiced, the team held media day. Practice was open to the public and fans had a chance to see Sun draftees and free agents who are fighting for a roster spot in training camp. The team has one more open practice scheduled for Thursday, May 3 at 6 p.m. on the campus of St. Joseph College in West Hartford.
