Chicago Sky Reach Franchise Record 25th Against Connecticut

When the Chicago Sky escaped their Sunday afternoon game against the Connecticut Sun with a 94-91 win, they also recorded their franchise-record 25th win.

Courtney Vandersloot led the way with 20 points and five assists, Candace Parker followed up with 20 points and 12 rebounds, Allie Quigley and Emma Meesseman contributed 15 points apiece, and Kahleah Cooper posted 11 points and four dimes. Meesseman also hit the game-winning triple after Parker beat a double-team with a pass to Meesseman in the corner.

“I think it’s great,” Coach James Wade said about the Sky’s win. “But it’s not really our main motivation. Always good to win. We have to see what this leads us to., but it always feels good to go in with a no. 1 record, but we still have a little bit more work to do to secure that.”

“We’re excited,” Parker added. “Building momentum going into the playoffs, we want to be playing our best basketball, but we also realize from last year it’s a new season once the playoff starts. So we gotta be focused. towards

The Sky host the Seattle Storm on Tuesday while the Sun looks to get back on track against the Los Angeles Sparks.
