Washington — All-Star Ivory Latta scored 23 points and Monique Currie had 17 as the Washington Mystics returned home for an 89-75 victory over the skidding Connecticut Sun on Tuesday afternoon.
Former University of Connecticut stars Stefanie Dolson and Bria Hartley also scored in double figures for the Mystics (11-13), who last played a home game July 2. They then had five consecutive road games, winning three of the last four.
Chiney Ogwumike had 18 points and 10 rebounds for the Sun (10-15). Connecticut has lost nine of its last 11 games.
Latta’s 3-pointer with 6:52 remaining during a 19-4 run gave Washington the lead for good.
Washington is 3-0 against Connecticut this year and has won six of seven since the start of the 2013 season, when coach Mike Thibault joined the Mystics after being dismissed by the Sun.
