UNCASVILLE, Conn., Sept. 10 (Ticker) -- Even their first overtime game of the season could not stop the Connecticut Sun from making a return trip to the WNBA Finals.

Margo Dydek scored four of her 12 points in the overtime as the Sun overcame a late collapse to post a 77-67 victory over the Indiana Fever en route to sweep of the Eastern Conference Finals.

Looking for their first WNBA title, the top-seeded Sun will have home-court advantage against either Sacramento or Houston.

In a tight contest throughout, the Sun grabbed a 60-56 lead with 1:31 left in regulation on two free throws by Lindsay Whalen. After Kelly Miller made 1-of-2 free throws, Tamika Catchings followed a miss by Connecticut with a 3-pointer that tied it, 60-60, with 18 seconds left.

The Sun had a chance to end the game in regulation, but Game 1 star Taj McWilliams-Franklin missed a layup as time expired.

In the overtime, Connecticut did not appear hesitant as Dydek buried a jumper from just inside the arc. Sales hit a 3-pointer and Dydek made a follow shot to highlight a 7-0 run that opened a 69-62 lead with 1:54 remaining.

Catchings followed with a layup, but the Sun made 8-of-12 free throws down the stretch to seal the win.

McWilliams-Franklin scored 15 points, Whalen had 14 and Asjha Jones chipped in 13 for Connecticut.

An MVP candidate, Catchings bounced back from a miserable first game that included a mild concussion, scoring 21 points and grabbing four steals.
