Four players scored in double figures as the Connecticut Sun (10-3) defeated the Washington Mystics (2-10) 77-64 at the Verizon Center in Washington, DC.

The Sun only took a four point lead into the half, but a 12-0 run to start the third quarter essentially put the game away for good. The Sun were able to stretch the lead to 19 after the third quarter, and Washington was only able to cut the lead to 11 in the fourth.
