Fitzgerald waived by WNBA’s Connecticut Sun

The former Temple guard played two games for the team.

The Connecticut Sun waived former Temple guard Feyonda Fitzgerald, the team announced Wednesday.

Fitzgerald joined the team while Sun guard Alex Bentley played for Belarus in the FIBA EuroBasket Women’s Tournament. Fitzgerald played two games, recording four rebounds and an assist in eight minutes.

In the 2016-17 season, Fitzgerald set a single-season program record with 232 assists. She dished 635 assists during her career to set a new program record.

Connecticut provided Fitzgerald her second shot at playing in the WNBA. The Indiana Fever selected her in the second round of this year’s WNBA Draft but waived her in May before finalizing their roster.
