UNCASVILLE, Conn. -- Svetlana Abrosimova became the latest former University of Connecticut player to sign with the WNBA's Connecticut Sun.

Abrosimova, who helped UConn to a national title in 2000, signed a free-agent contract Wednesday with first-place Connecticut (16-10). She joins former Huskies Barbara Turner, Asjha Jones, Tamika (Williams) Raymond and Ketia Swanier on the Sun's roster.

To make room for Abrosimova, the Sun waived rookie guard Jolene Anderson, who played in 24 games and averaged four points.

Abrosimova averaged 10 points and over four rebounds per game in seven seasons with the Minnesota Lynx. She averaged over seven points during the Olympics, helping Russia to a bronze medal.
