Former UConn Huskies and current New York Liberty guard Kia Nurse, the 10th overall pick in the 2018 WNBA Draft, was at Mohegan Sun Arena recently for some exhibition games as she and the Liberty prepared for the 2018 WNBA season.

Nurse had 10 points in her first career exhibition game in which the Dallas Wings beat NY, 76-70.

In the 81-75 win over the Los Angeles Sparks in their final exhibition game, Nurse led the Liberty with 19 points.

Nurse will kick off her rookie campaign tonight when she and the Liberty will face her best friend, Gabby Williams, and the Chicago Sky. You can catch the game live on Twitter at 7 p.m.
