WEB UPDATE: Monta?ana signs with Connecticut Sun

Posted Wednesday, April 20, 1:50 a.m. No team selected GW women’s basketball star Anna Monta?ana in Saturday’s WNBA draft, but she may still have a shot to play in the league. Tuesday, she signed a contract with the Connecticut Sun.

“I am excited to go,” Monta?ana said. “I think I have the best chance to make the team there.”

Monta?ana joins former Colonials Cathy Joens and Ugo Oha, who both will be in WNBA training camps. Joens will be with the Washington Mystics while Oha will be with the San Antonio Silver Stars.

“(Ugo) told me how hard it is,” Monta?ana said of Oha, who was cut last season by the Sun in training camp. “I have to go and compete hard everyday.”

“At least I get the chance to see what level I am at, it’s an opportunity to see if I am ready to play in the WNBA,” Monta?ana added.
