UNCASVILLE, Conn. (AP) -- Courtney Williams had 25 points, including Connecticut's final six, and tied her career high with 10 rebounds to help the Sun hold on for a 91-87 win over the Phoenix Mercury on Friday night.
Chiney Ogwumike fouled out with 22 points on 10-of-11 shooting and Alyssa Thomas added 11 points, a career-best 10 assists, eight rebounds and two steals for Connecticut (11-10). The Sun snapped a three-game skid.
The Mercury's Angel Robinson made a layup to tie it at 85 with 2 1/2 minutes to play, but Williams converted a driving layup and then made a pull-up jumper from the top of the key to give the Sun a four-point lead with 45.6 seconds remaining.
Brittney Griner answered with a layup six seconds later but neither team scored again until Williams hit two free throws with 0.6 seconds to play.
Both teams shot better than 51 percent from the field but Connecticut was plus-three on the offensive glass and forced 14 Phoenix turnovers while committing just seven.
