WNBA: 'People need to start paying attention to Connecticut Sun'

Connecticut Sun captain Jasmine Thomas says they can't be overlooked anymore
Connecticut Sun captain Jasmine Thomas believes the Sun deserve more respect ahead of the WNBA finals. 

Connecticut Sun and Washington Mystics are both targeting a first ever WNBA title - with game one of the best-of-five series starting on Sunday. 

Sun haven't been in the finals since 2005, whilst this year's eastern conference champions, the Mystics, will be aiming to avenge their defeat to Seattle in last year's finals.  

Speaking to Sportsworld's Shabnam Younus-Jewell, Thomas discussed why people have to pay attention to the team now, how star player Courtney Williams motivates the squad and what it would mean for Connecticut to have its first ever WNBA champions.
