The WNBA’s Connecticut Sun announced Thursday that the team signed former Temple point guard Feyonda Fitzgerald. She joined team workouts on Thursday, according to a team press release.
This is Fitzgerald’s second chance at a WNBA career. The Indiana Fever selected Fitzgerald in the second round of April’s WNBA Draft. The team waived her on May 10, two days before it had to finalize its roster.

Fitzgerald averaged 17.3 points and 7.3 assists per game during her four-year career at Temple. As a senior in the 2016-17 season, she set a single-season program record with 232 assists. She also earned All-American honorable mention from the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association and became the first Owl to earn All-American honors since 2007. Fitzgerald graduated as Temple’s career assists leader with 635.
Connecticut has a 2-5 record, which ranks 10th in the 12-team league and second-to-last in the Eastern Conference. The Sun’s next game is at home on Sunday against the Atlanta Dream. The Sun plays its home games at Mohegan Sun Arena, the site of last season’s American Athletic Conference tournament.
