Update: Charles sensational, Sun rally past Mercury

Tina Charles scored 19 points with a franchise-record 23 rebounds, and the Connecticut Sun rode its international stars late to rally past the Phoenix Mercury, 82-79, on Friday at Mohegan Sun Arena.

Sandrine Gruda and Anete Jekabsone-Zogota combined to score 14 of the Sun's final 16 points, and Connecticut (9-4) improved to 7-1 at home this season and 5-0 against the Western Conference.

Charles, who has 10 double-doubles in 13 games, had set the franchise record for rebounds in a game with 19 a week prior at Los Angeles.
