Charles leads Sun past Mercury



Posted Jun 25 2010 9:49PM

UNCASVILLE, Conn.(AP) Tina Charles had 19 points and a career-high 23 rebounds to help the Connecticut Sun beat the Phoenix Mercury 82-79 on Friday night.

Sandrine Gruda scored eight of her 17 points in the fourth quarter for the Sun (9-4). Former UConn star Diana Taurasi led Phoenix with 26 points.

Connecticut led 82-75 with 1:54 remaining, but the Mercury (5-8) scored the next four points. Taurasi missed a potential tying 3-pointer with 5.4 seconds remaining, and also missed a desperation 3-point heave at the final horn.

Down 73-70 with 4:10 remaining, the Sun used a 12-2 run - capped by Anete Jekabsone Zogota's 3-pointer with 1:54 left - to take a 82-75 lead.

Jekabsone-Zogota made two 3-pointers in the final 3 minutes.

Kara Lawson had 11 points for the Sun, and Jekabsone-Zogota finished with 10.

DeWanna Bonner had 16 points and nine rebounds for the Mercury, while Candice Dupree had 16 points, and Penny Taylor 13.
