Sky close season with 77-58 win over Mystics

Posted: Updated:

ROSEMONT, Ill. (AP) - Courtney Vandersloot scored 20 points to help the Chicago Sky beat Washington 77-58 on Saturday night, handing the last-place Mystics their 13th straight loss.

Epiphanny Prince added 12 points for the Sky (14-20), who had a season-low 23 points in the first half. Chicago was without Olympic center Sylvia Fowles (strained calf).

Veteran point guard Ticha Penicheiro was scoreless with two assists in about 11 minutes in the final game of her 15-year career. Penicheiro, the league's all-time leader in assists and No. 2 in steals, spent 12 season with Sacramento and two with Los Angeles before joining Chicago this season.

Monique Currie scored 15 points and Jasmine Thomas had 12 for the Mystics (5-29), who finished with the second-worst record in franchise history since joining the league in 1998. Washington was without leading scorer Crystal Langhorne (foot).
