UNCASVILLE, Conn. (CBS Connecticut and AP) – Two-hundred children will get to see Sunday’s WNBA playoff game between Connecticut and Phoenix thanks to a former WNBA star.

Katie Douglas, who played 14 years in the league, including five in Connecticut, has purchased and donated a block of tickets for the second-round game between the Sun and Mercury at the Mohegan Sun arena.

Douglas, who retired after the 2015 season, still holds the record for most 3-pointers in a Sun uniform with 383. She says the ticket donation is just her way of giving back to the community.

The tickets will go to several nonprofit organizations for distribution.
