Mystics Win Second Straight Game

Fresh off a 79-75 victory over a hot Minnesota Lynx team Thursday night, the Washington Mystics returned home to face the Connecticut Sun.

Point guard Ivory Latta said this about the win over the Lynx Thursday night: "This was a big game for us. I think our season should turn around from this game."

Well, if Latta is looking for a turn around, the future is bright. Earlier today, the Mystics took down the Sun by a score of 74-63. Washington rallied behind Latta and Crystal Langhorne who scored 14 and 18 points respectively.

The first quarter was a landslide with Washington leading 23-7 by the end of the quarter. And they never looked back, never relinquishing their lead.

Tina Charles scored 18 points to lead the Sun while Kelsey Griffin added 17 and grabbed 8 rebounds. Charles had 12 rebounds to go with her 18 points, posting her 15th double-double of the season.

Today's win, combined with the win from Thursday night, no doubt will give Washington the confidence they need heading towards the playoffs. With less than a month left in the regular season, Washington needs to be consistent if they want to keep their fourth place spot in the East with New York breathing down their necks.
