Douglas and Ogwumike lead Sun to win over Fever
UNCASVILLE, Conn. (AP) — In the midst of their longest winning streak in two years, Connecticut Sun coach Anne Donovan found a teaching moment for young posts Kelsey Bone and Chiney Ogwumike.
The pair was benched a few minutes into the game Tuesday night. They didn’t play again until well into second period. Their response, however, was pronounced. Bone and Ogwumike combined for 34 points the rest of the way, leading the streaking Sun to an 89-67 victory over the Indiana Fever, Connecticut’s fifth straight win.
Ogwumike scored all 18 of her points in the second half and Bone added 16 for the Sun (7-6), who moved into second place in the WNBA’s Eastern Conference after beginning the month in last place.
“(Donovan) said ‘are you ready now?’ when she put us back in,” Bone said. “We had to answer that call. Anytime your coach challenges you and you respond, that’s always a good thing.”
This is Connecticut’s longest winning streak since July of 2012 when it won five straight.
