UNCASVILLE, Conn. (AP) — Stephanie White was honoured as the WNBA’s Coach of the Year on Sunday after guiding the Connecticut Sun to a 27-win season and a No. 3 seed in the playoffs.
White, the former Indiana Fever and Vanderbilt coach, took over a team that made it to last years Finals before coach Curt Miller left for Los Angeles and star player Jonquel Jones, a former MVP was traded to Recent York and point guard Jasmine Thomas left to affix her former coach out west.
The team also needed to cope with a season-ending injury to key player Brionna Jones a month into the season.
White received 36 votes from a national panel of 60 sportswriters and broadcasters. Latricia Trammell of the Dallas Wings finished in second place with 11 votes, and Sandy Brondello of the Recent York Liberty was third with six votes. Becky Hammon of the Las Vegas Aces received three votes; Cheryl Reeve of the Minnesota Lynx and Tanisha Wright of the Atlanta Dream each received two votes.
White put in an offence that went through 6-foot-2 veteran forward Alyssa Thomas, who responded by becoming the first player in WNBA history to record greater than 600 points, 300 rebounds and 300 assists in a single season, putting up a league-record six triple-doubles.
“I believe she’s brought in a brand new energy for us,” Thomas said of White. “After all a brand new offence that has allowed each of us (Thomas and DeWanna Bonner) to thrive offensively. I believe, everyone has talked all season long about what we lost in coaches, players. But the team has balled out and located a option to win with this group that now we have.”
White said she never considered it a rebuilding yr for the Sun, who’ve had three different people win the league’s highest coaching award as she joined Miller and Mike Thibault.
“I believe that we’re a bunch that knows that now we have really good pieces, a superb core, an experienced core, who has won lots of games, been to championships as well,” said White, who also was the AP Coach of the Year. “The noise outside the locker room was talking about it being rebuilding, but our expectation was to compete.”
The Sun are on the verge of returning to the WNBA semifinals for a sixth consecutive season, up 1-0 headed into Sunday’s game against the Minnesota Lynx.
“I believe to lose such a vital piece like Brionna Jones and should adjust pretty dramatically…I believe Steph has done an incredible job,” Lynx coach Cheryl Reeve said.
