Connecticut Sun go into break with victory

Playing without Asjha Jones and down by 12 points with 6:18 left in the fourth quarter, it appeared as if the Connecticut Sun would head into the Olympic break on a losing note. But keyed by eight points from Renee Montgomery, the Sun rallied to force overtime and then emerged with an improbable 80-78 win. The victory extended Connecticut's winning streak to a season-high five games and gives the Sun a 4 game lead over second-place Indiana in the Eastern Conference standings. Connecticut's 15-4 record ties defending WNBA champion Minnesota for the best record in the league.

Tina Charles led the Sun with 25 points and 13 points while Mistie Mims, who is proving to be one of the best free agent signings in the league this year, started in place of Jones and had 19 points, 10 rebounds and two steals. Montgomery, who had 26 points in her previous five games, had 15 points.
