Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON (AP) - All-Star Ivory Latta had 18 points and 13 assists as the Washington Mystics rallied from a 21-point deficit for an 82-78 win over the Eastern Conference-leading Chicago Sky on Wednesday afternoon.

Latta scored 10 points in the third quarter and rookie Emma Meesseman had all 12 of her points in the fourth. The Mystics (9-9) took control with a 15-4 run midway through the final quarter. Washington snapped a 2-game skid and picked up a rare victory over Chicago.

Sylvia Fowles had 21 points and Epiphanny Prince added 18 for the Sky (12-5), who had won 10 of 11 against Washington and entered with a season-high, 5-game winning streak.

Elena Della Donne scored 12 points for Chicago, but finished 2 of 15 from the field and did not play in the fourth quarter.

Meesseman scored six during the decisive run, including two free throws and a layup to give Washington a 75-64 lead with five minutes remaining.

Swin Cash added 10 points for the Sky and her layup with 14.9 seconds cut Washington's lead to 81-78.

Monique Currie finished with 14 points and Tayler Hill had 11 for the Mystics. Hill split a pair of free throws with 12.4 seconds, giving Washington a 4-point lead and the Sky misfired on their final possession.
