Mystics snap skid, top Sky

Washington, DC (SportsNetwork.com) - Emma Meesseman scored 16 points, pulled down 11 rebounds and had five steals to lead the Washington Mystics to a 79-68 win over the short-handed Chicago Sky at Verizon Center.

Bria Hartley added 13 points and Kara Lawson chipped in eight points and 10 boards for the Mystics, who broke a three-game losing streak. Tianna Hawkins scored 10 points in the win.

Chicago was missing leading scorer Elena Delle Donne from Friday's game. She remained in Chicago to receive treatment for Lyme disease and will be reevaluated Monday. Also, Jessica Breland, the third-leading scorer, sat out with a leg injury.

Allie Quigley had 18 points and Epiphanny Prince scored 17 for Chicago, which lost its fourth in a row.

A jumper from Hawkins in the closing seconds of the third quarter gave Washington a 54-53 edge. Tamera Young's bucket at the start of the fourth moved Chicago back in front, but the Mystics scored the next 10 points, capped by Hartley's driving layup with seven minutes left.

The visitors didn't get closer than five points the rest of the game.
