Mohegan Tribe wins with ownership of WNBA team

Two years ago, the Mohegan Tribe of Connecticut took a gamble and became the first tribe and the first non-NBA entity to own a professional basketball team.

Now the tribe and its Connecticut Sun team are the hit of the WNBA. The Suns have a 12-2 record, the best in the league, and the team regularly sells out the tribe's arena.

The tribe will host the All-Star Game on Saturday, another sellout.
