Chiney's first pro game

Chiney made her professional basketball debut today in a preseason game between the Connecticut Sun and the New York Liberty.

The Sun won 75-54. Chiney played for 17 minutes, during which she scored seven points, grabbed four rebounds, stole the ball once, got hit in the mouth and, as she tweeted:

    Cut lip.
    Lost contact.
    All worth it.
    Had a blast hitting the court for the first time!
