It can be said that DeWanna’s move from Phoenix Mercury to Connecticut Sun in 2020 might have also led to their closeness.

A month later, in March, it was Alyssa’s turn to share her first post with DeWanna. The power forward shared a post of her and her partner enjoying date night at pottery classes.

Nothing close to the movie Ghost, but still a fun-filled experience for the basketball couple.
