Latta scores 15 to lead 4 in double figures; Mystics roll 84-61 over Shock for historic win

Ivory Latta scored 15 points and the Washington Mystics posted their largest margin of victory in nearly five years in a 84-61 win over the Tulsa Shock on Sunday.

Monique Currie scored 13 points, Crystal Langhorne added 11, and Matee Ajavon had 10 for Washington, which snapped a five-game losing streak with its second win over Tulsa this year.

The Mystics (5-6) held the Shock (3-10) to nine points in the third quarter, a season low for Washington's defense and Tulsa's offense. It was Washington's first win by more than 20 points since defeating Seattle 89-57 on July 20, 2008.

Roneeka Hodges scored 16 points to lead Tulsa, which has lost its first three games in a four-game road trip after winning two straight at home.
