UNCASVILLE, Conn. (WAFB) - Former LSU guard Alexis Morris, who helped lead the Tigers to a National Championship, has been waived by the Connecticut Sun, the team that selected her in the WNBA Draft just a month ago.

Morris shared the news via social media on Wednesday, May 10, the same day the team beat the New York Liberty in a preseason game.

In the preseason game, Morris was 0-of-2 from the field. She finished with two points on free throws, three rebounds, and no assists in eight minutes on the court.

The Sun drafted her in the second round (No. 22 overall).
