Sun’s Alyssa Thomas ejected for flagrant foul on Sky’s Reese

Connecticut Sun star Alyssa Thomas was ejected late in the third quarter of Saturday night’s 86-82 win over the Chicago Sky after being called a flagrant foul 2 on rookie Angel Reese.

Thomas and Reese were fighting for a rebound when Thomas extended his arm into Reese’s neck and appeared to push Reese toward the ground. Reese took a heavy fall but returned to the game.

After the play was reviewed, Thomas, who came in second in MVP voting last season, received the first flagrant 2 foul of her career. She leaves with nine points, six assists and six rebounds.

Reese, the No. 7 pick in the 2024 WNBA Draft, finished with 13 points and five rebounds.

The Sun improved to 5-0 with Saturday’s win, while the Sky, hosting their first home game of the season, fell to 2-2.
