Mystics settles for weekend split
Connecticut has milestone night in victory
Question of the Day
UNCASVILLE, CONN. — The Washington Mystics took a back seat as two players for the Connecticut Sun took center stage.
Tan White eclipsed 2,000 career points, and Kara Lawson exceeded 600 career assists in Connecticut’s 82-75 victory over Washington on Saturday night.
White scored nine points and pulled down a career-high 10 rebounds. Tina Charles and Renee Montgomery scored 16 points apiece.
The Sun (15-8) held the Mystics (5-16) scoreless for a five-minute stretch in the fourth period while snapping a 63-63 tie to take lead for good.
Danielle McCray scored 12 points for the Sun, and Lawson added 10.
“We have played with tremendous heart and determination all year. There have been games that we have come up short, but we have been in every single game right up until the end,” Washington coach Trudi Lacey said. “We played a tight game, we weren’t as aggressive as I would have liked us to be. Connecticut shot 29 free throws and we only shot seven, and I thought that was the big difference in the game.”
The Mystics were striving for a weekend sweep after rallying from a nine-point, fourth-quarter deficit to defeat the New York Liberty 64-63 on Friday night at Verizon Center.
Langhorne scored 18 points and Ajavon added 13. Walker scored 10 points for Washigton, which took the lead for good with the final points of the game with 1:02 left to play on a pair of free throws by Ajavon.
The win was the Mystics’ second over the Liberty in a span of seven days.
Leilani Mitchell scored a season-high 18 points and had four steals for the Liberty (13-10). Cappie Pondexter added 13 points, and Plenette Pierson had 11.
