ROSEMONT, ILL. (AP) - Renee Montgomery scored 20 points and the Connecticut Sun held off the Chicago Sky 78-71 Friday night.

The win was the second straight for the Sun (17-16) who will miss the playoffs for the second straight year. Epiphanny Prince scored 19 points for the Sky (14-19), who were eliminated last week.

Connecticut’s 66-55 lead dwindled to one point midway through the fourth quarter, but consecutive buckets from Tan White, Asjha Jones and Tina Charles provided breathing room.

Jones finished with 16 points for the Sun.
