How Connecticut Sun’s Yvonne Anderson earned first WNBA roster spot at age 32

UNCASVILLE – Yvonne Anderson could have given up playing basketball after she went undrafted in 2012.

She could have hung up her sneakers after not making an overseas team roster her first year as a professional.

And she could have just as easily walked away from the sport after being waived by the WNBA’S Chicago Sky at the 2017 training camp.

But she didn’t.

She kept playing. She spent 10 years playing overseas. She played for 10 teams in various countries, improving herself not only as a player but as a person. She grew up and matured. And so did her game.

She represented Serbia on her national team at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and led the team to a gold medal at the 2021 European Women’s Basketball Championship (EuroBasket).
