ROSEMONT, ILL. – June 30, 2015 – New York Liberty guard Epiphanny Prince will be active for the first time this season when the Liberty face the Chicago Sky on Tuesday night at Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Ill., on ESPN2, it was announced today by New York Head Coach Bill Laimbeer.

Prince, who was acquired from Sky via an offseason trade in exchange for Cappie Pondexter, missed the first nine games of the season due to a pre-existing commitment to compete in the Eurobasket Women 2015 Tournament.

Prince, a Brooklyn native, who competed collegiately at Rutgers University, played her first five WNBA seasons for the Sky, eclipsing 2,000-career points while averaging 14.1 ppg.

This will be the first meeting of the season between Chicago and New York, who are currently tied for third in the Eastern Conference standings with identical 5-4 records.
