Update: Sun right ship, top Mystics

Asjha Jones scored a season-high 23 points and Renee Montgomery added 17 to help the Connecticut Sun hold off the Washington Mystics, 88-78, on Tuesday and snap a two-game skid at Mohegan Sun Arena.

Tina Charles added 15 points and nine rebounds, and Kara Lawson scored 11 for the Sun, who after starting 8-1 at home had dropped their previous two here last week.

Crystal Langhorne netted a team-high 23 points for the Mystics (13-9). The fourth-place Sun (13-10) moved within a half-game of Washington in the Eastern Conference standings.
