Vandersloot hits game-winner in OT; Sky beat Mystics 86-84
ROSEMONT, Ill. (AP) Elena Delle Donne had 28 points and 11 rebounds, Courtney Vandersloot hit a game-winner with 4.6 seconds left in overtime and the Chicago Sky rallied to beat the Washington Mystics 86-84 on Friday night.
Delle Donne made a steal and went coast-to-coast to tie it at 84-all with 48.5 seconds left. After a Washington miss, Vandersloot dribbled down the clock and sank a pull-up jumper. Washington had a good look before the buzzer, but Stefanie Dolson's shot was blocked Erika de Souza.
Vandersloot finished with 14 points and five assists for Chicago (7-9), which is ranked No. 8 in the AP power poll. Delle Donne was 13 of 27 from the field for her fifth straight 20-plus scoring game. She also recorded her first double-double of the season.
Vandersloot drove the lane and fed it to Delle Donne for an open jumper to tie it at 77-all with 36.1 seconds left in regulation. Tayler Hill's runner in the lane was blocked by Imani Boyette and Delle Donne secured the rebound. Vandersloot found Boyette in the lane but her shot didn't fall and Washington didn't get off a shot before overtime.
Hill scored a career-high 25 points for fourth-ranked Washington (9-9). Kia Vaughn scored 14 of her 20 points in the first half for the Mystics, who tied a franchise record with their fourth overtime game of the season.
