WNBA's Sun signs British Olympian Leedham

UNCASVILLE, Conn. (AP) - British Olympian Johannah Leedham has signed to play with the WNBA's Connecticut Sun.

The team, which drafted Leedham almost three years ago, did not disclose details of the rookie contract on Monday.

The 5-foot-10 Leedham led the British Olympic team, averaging 16.2 points and 5.2 rebounds during the 2012 summer games in London. She also has played professionally in Poland and Australia.

Leedham scored 3,050 points during her college career at Franklin Pierce, becoming the all-time leading scorer in Division II women's basketball.

It will be a homecoming of sorts for Leedham, who was the New England Prep School Player of the Year in 2005 at Connecticut's Cheshire Academy.
