ROSEMONT, Ill. (Associated Press) -

Epiphanny Prince's jumper with 38.3 seconds left put the Chicago Sky ahead to stay in an 89-85 win Wednesday over the Washington Mystics.

Prince, who missed three games in June while playing with the Russian national team, took a pass from Courtney Vandersloot and hit a shot from the right wing to break an 85-85 tie and put Chicago ahead. It was the Sky's fifth win in six games.

Washington had a chance to tie after a Prince miss with 10.7 seconds left, but Ivory Latta and Monique Currie couldn't connect before Elena Delle Donne grabbed a rebound and hit two free throws to seal the win.

Delle Donne struggled from the field shooting 5 for 19 with 18 points but Sylvia Fowles had 26 points and 18 rebounds to lead the Sky. Prince also had 15.

Crystal Langhorne led Washington with 18 points and Latta had 17 for the Mystics.
