ROSEMONT, Ill. (AP) Allie Quigley hit a 3-pointer with 2.1 seconds left to give the Chicago Sky to an 87-85 victory over the Washington Mystics on Friday night.
After forcing a turnover on a jump ball won by Elena Delle Donne with 17.4 seconds left, Cappie Pondexter worked into the lane, found Courtney Vandersloot on the left wing and Vandersloot dribbled back across the free throw line before passing to Quigley on the right wing for the winning shot.
