Fowles helps Sky edge Fever

ROSEMONT, Ill. — Sylvia Fowles had 21 points, 10 rebounds and four blocked shots to help the Chicago Sky beat the Indiana Fever 60-57 on Tuesday night, snapping a six-game losing streak.

Epiphanny Prince added 13 points for the Sky, who had lost 13 of 16.

Prince hit a driving layup for a 57-55 Sky lead with 21.3 seconds left. Fowles fouled Erlana Larkins, who made one of two free throws with 16.1 seconds remaining. After the Sky's Jamierra Faulkner hit one of two free throws, Fowles tried to block a driving Tamika Catchings but was called for the foul with 4.1 seconds left.

Catchings made one of two free throws. On the other end, Allie Quigley hit both free throws for the final. The Sky shot 16 of 17 from the free-throw line while the Fever were 9 for 20.

Fowles scored the first five points of the fourth quarter to extend the Sky's lead to 49-41. But the Fever tied it at 51 after Karima Christmas' 3-pointer with 5:12 left and Catchings' two free throws at 3:54.

Catchings missed both free throws with 1:32 remaining, but hit a layup with 1:02 left. Fowles answered with a layup with 48.4 seconds left before Coleman made both free throws to tie it again with 38.5 seconds left.

The Sky remained without starters Courtney Vandersloot (knee) and Elena Delle Donne (Lyme disease). Delle Donne, who is averaging 21.2 points, hasn't played since June 25.

The teams were playing their second straight game against each other. The Fever beat the Sky 82-64 on Thursday in Indianapolis in its most lopsided win of the season.

The season series is tied at 2-2.
