Charles scores 16 as Sun routs Lynx 108-79



Posted Aug 16 2011 10:57PM

UNCASVILLE, Conn. (AP) A sellout crowd came to see Maya Moore return to Connecticut.

Tina Charles stole the show.

She had 18 rebounds and scored 16 points to help the Connecticut Sun send the Minnesota Lynx to their most lopsided loss of the season, 108-79 Tuesday night.

It was the largest margin of defeat for the Lynx (18-6) this season, who own the WNBA's best record. Connecticut set a franchise record for regulation scoring.

``It is a great confidence booster, without question,'' Lawson said. ``They have been the best team in the league all year long. It was a measuring-stick game for us. Whenever you are playing the team with the best record in the league, you want to see how you stack up against them.''

Especially when that team has the league's big-name rookie.

Moore, the former University of Connecticut star, scored two points on 1-for-7 shooting in her return to Connecticut.

``Connecticut played well, played with confidence,'' Moore said. ``They hit their shots and we didn't get the job done on defense. We didn't meet the challenge.''

Renee Montgomery had 17 points and seven assists for Connecticut (16-8) while Kara Lawson had 16 points and made 4 of 5 3-pointers. Asjha Jones had 15 for the Sun and Kelsey Griffin added 14.

``We feel like we are building into a good team,'' Lawson said. ``We feel like we are a team that is going to make the playoffs and a team that has as good a shot as any team in the Eastern Conference to advance far.''

Lindsay Whalen led the Lynx with 20 points. Seimone Augustus and Rebekkah Brunson had 11 apiece.
