Epiphanny Prince led a balanced attack with 15 points as the Chicago Sky snapped a nine-game losing streak with an 82-70 WNBA victory over Eastern Conference-leading Connecticut on Sunday in Uncasville, Conn.

Playing without center Sylvia Fowles, who missed the game for personal reasons, the Sky (9-14) had five players in double figures as they outscored the Sun 43-37 in the second half at Mohegan Sun Arena.

Like Fowles, Tamera Young also missed the game for person reasons. Neither player traveled with the team.

Reserve Carolyn Swords filled in for Fowles and collected a career-high 14 points. Swin Cash also scored 14 while Shay Murphy and Sonja Petrovic each added 10 points.

Allison Hightower collected a game-high 17 points and five assists while Tina Charles added 15 points and eight rebounds for the Sun (17-6), who came into the game winners of seven of their last eight games.

The Sky trailed 53-46 with 4:01 left in the third quarter, then launched a 36-17 run on Cash's driving layup. Cash scored all her points in the second half.

The Sky's losing streak was the longest since a 13-game skid during their inaugural 2006 season.

The Sky and Sun meet again Tuesday at Allstate Arena.
