Sky Shocked in Overtime Thriller

On "Pride" day at Allstate Arena, the Tulsa Shock erased a 7-point deficit in the final minutes as the Chicago Sky fell in overtime 105-99. Jessica Breland turned in a career performance with 26 points, 10 rebounds, 5 assists and 7 blocks. Epiphanny Prince added 24 points and 8 assists, but it wasn't enough to overcome Skylar Diggins' career-high 33 points.

The first quarter began with a barrage of scoring from both teams. Tulsa went 5-for-5 from downtown and Roneeka Hodges chipped in 11 points. Epiphanny Prince and Jessica Breland scored eight points apiece in the opening minutes but the Shock took a 27-24 lead into the second quarter.

The Sky used a 7-0 run to start the second quarter and Chicago stretched the lead to 10 at halftime, 48-38, behind 14 first-half points from Breland. The Sky's defense held Tulsa to just 11 points in the quarter on 5-for-19 shooting.

Working with a 10-point lead, the Sky weathered an up-and-down third quarter to hold a 68-62 lead going into the final period. The Shock got back to within two points, but an 8-2 Chicago run capped by Jamierra Faulkner's three-point play put the Sky back in control.

The Shock erased the Sky's lead in the final minute, tying the game at 88 with 19.7 seconds remaining. Prince missed a pull-up jumper in the final seconds sending the game went to overtime.

In the opening minutes of overtime, Sky forward Jessica Breland fouled out and Tulsa's scoring punch proved too much when Jordan Hooper hit a three pointer and Diggins hit a floater in the lane to push the lead to five, effectively icing the game. Glory Johnson finished with a season-high 22 points for the Shock. The Sky had five players finish in double figures, including three off the bench.

The Sky head out on a five-game road trip with the first stop at Mohegan Sun Arena to take on the Connecticut Sun on Wednesday, June 25. The game will be broadcast on The U Too and WNBA LiveAccess at 6pm CT.
