Update: Sun ride defense late, hold off Liberty

Tan White scored 18 points, Tina Charles registered another double-double after a slow start and the Connecticut Sun held on in a back-and-forth game with the New York Liberty, 75-68, on Friday at Mohegan Sun Arena.

Charles finished with 13 points and a season-high 15 rebounds for Connecticut (4-2), which led by as many as 16 points before the Foxwoods-sponsored Liberty (2-3) rallied to close it to two on several occasions. But the Sun outscored New York, 7-2, over the final 2:44 to improve to 4-0 at home.

Kara Lawson added 13 points for the Sun, and Janel McCarville and Taj McWilliams-Franklin each had 14 for New York. Former UConn star Kalana Greene scored 13 off the bench for the Liberty.
