WASHINGTON (AP) Cappie Pondexter's layup with 6 seconds left gave the Sky a 66-64 victory over the Washington Mystics on Sunday.

Washington's Kara Lawson hit a 3-pointer with 28 seconds to tie the game. Coming out of a timeout, Pondexter, out near the halfcourt line, let the clock wind down before driving for the winning points. Lawson missed a last-second jumper.
