Mountaineer Bria Holmes is in her fourth season in the WNBA, as a guard for the Connecticut Suns. Holmes and the Suns have traveled to Florida to take care of some unfinished business from this last season after losing just short of the finals.
Now, Holmes and her fellow teammates look to pick up where they left off and see what they can do with the abbreviated season they’ve been given in light of COVID-19. Twelve teams will play a 22-game season and then determine a champion from there. The games will take place in Bradenton, Florida at the IMG Academy campus.
The Suns started using the Zoom platform as a virtual training camp during the months of quarantine and had to get creative as to how they would stay in shape and get ready for the abbreviated season this summer.
Mountaineer Bria Holmes appeared in 34 regular season games during the 2019 season, including eight playoff games. She scored 213 points, 77 field goals and 20 three-pointers made. Holmes was named to the 2019 AP Comeback Player of the Year List after she sat out the 2018 season due to her pregnancy.
The Sun take on the Minnesota Lynx Sunday July 26th at noon for their first 2020 season game, no fans will be in attendance.
