ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Alex Bentley scored 24 points on 10-of-16 shooting and the Connecticut Sun snapped a three-game losing streak, beating the Dallas Wings 86-83 on Saturday night.

Alyssa Thomas gave the Sun (4-13) an 85-80 lead on a baseline drive with 22 seconds left. Skylar Diggins drew a foul on her 3-point attempt less than two seconds later and made all three free throws to pull Dallas (8-10) within two.

Bentley then missed one of her two free throws which gave Dallas an opportunity to tie on the final possession. But Diggins missed a pair of 3-point attempts.

Thomas added 17 points and Camille Little scored 14 for Connecticut, the No. 11 team in the AP WNBA power poll. The Sun took the lead for good during a 10-0 run capped at 76-69 on Chiney Ogwumike’s layup with 5:18 left.

Johnson had 16 points and rookie Aerial Powers added 15 to lead six in double figures for the sixth-ranked Wings.
