    Phoenix Mercury guard Sophia Cunningham went pantsless while rocking an oversized sweater in the WNBA tunnel.

    The 27-year-old wowed fans when she posted snaps of herself arriving at Footprint Center over the weekend, along with pics of herself on court.

    'Before and during,' she captioned the post Monday.

    One of the snaps showed Cunningham rocking an ultra-short, long sleeve maroon sweater with the word 'Arizona' printed across the front.

    She accessorized with a pair of nude stiletto pumps and trendy Celine sunglasses, as she let her bright blonde tresses cascade down her back.

    She followed it up with a photo of herself on court, playfully poking her tongue out after making a three-pointer against the Las Vegas Aces.

    Although the dominant Sin City team clinched victory, the Mercury didn't make it easy for them, finishing 103-99.

    Since Cunningham was selected as the 13th overall pick of the 2019 WNBA draft, the league has experienced some major growth.

    Along with a massive ratings boost, fans are also paying attention to the fashion-forward ensembles players are rocking off the court.

    Los Angeles Sparks rookie Cameron Brink said fans, and the media alike, are 'finally' starting to take notice of the 'fits the players have been rocking while making their famed tunnel entrances.

    'Now that people can see more deeply into our lives, they’re interested and interacting more,' she recently told Harper's Bazaar.

    'Hopefully, the momentum continues, because the WNBA has so much to offer,' she added.

    Her teammate, Dearica Hamby, chimed in, 'The tunnel fits have really been a way for us to express our personalities.'

    She went on, 'People see us on the court, and if you don’t know us, then it’s hard to relate. I feel like through style and looks, people can get a sense of who you are a bit more.'

    Cunningham has been turning heads since the season kicked off last month, rocking everything from a black mini dress with daring cut-outs, to a casual pair of beige corduroy trousers paired with a white crop top.
