It's Washington Mystics guard Bria Hartley's birthday, who turns 22 today. Here's a photo of her birthday card, from the UConn coaching staff (via her Instagram account):
In addition to UConn's birthday card, Hartley also received some notable tweets. The most notable one comes from San Antonio Stars guard Kayla McBride:
Before you start thinking that Hartley was traded to San Antonio to replace Becky Hammon, or that McBride was moving to the Nation's Capital, time to be disappointed. They will be teammates for UE Sopron in Hungary in the EuroCup. Bummer.
Another San Antonio basketball player also gave his birthday wishes:
Happy Bday @Breezyyy14— Danny Green (@DGreen_14) September 30, 2014
Huh? Spurs sharpshooter Danny Green knows Bria Hartley? Both Hartley and Green are from North Babylon, New York, a hamlet in Suffolk County, the eastern half of Long Island. They took a picture together at the ESPY's earlier this summer:
The Mystics gave their birthday tweet too,
as well as a young Mystics fan who wants to be like her one day:
Finally, here's another fan who appreciates highlights:

Happy birthday Bria!
