ROSEMONT, Ill. — Sylvia Fowles capped a late Chicago rally with a game-winning layup as the Sky claimed a 65-63 WNBA victory over the Washington Mystics on Friday night.

With 1.8 seconds left in regulation, Swin Cash launched a successful inbounds pass to Fowles, who turned around under the basket and put in the winning basket.

Fowles, the Eastern Conference player of the month for May, closed with 19 points and a season-high 16 rebounds for Chicago (3-1). Teammate Epiphanny Prince scored a career-high 31 points, including 13 in the final 1:44 as Chicago rallied from an eight-point deficit.

Washington (1-3) was paced by Monique Currie’s 15 points and 12 from Crystal Langhorne.
