Chicago wears down Fever

INDIANAPOLIS — All things considered, the Indiana Fever wish Epiphanny Prince was still in Russia.

Prince, who has been with the Chicago Sky for less than a week off a stint with the Russian National Team, came up with a big second half to lead the Sky to a 71-61 win over the seriously depleted Fever on Saturday night.

Prince scored 11 of her 21 points in the fourth quarter when the Sky wore down and rolled past the home team. She was 5-of-7 from the field.

"Indy is a very physical team and aggressive team," said Prince. "We were able to capitalize on defense to start our offense."

All but three of the Sky's 22 points in the final period came from Prince or rookie first-round draft pick Elena Delle Donne.

"I thought for 36 minutes, we really battled," said Fever coach Lin Dunn. "We got a lot out of our backups, some of whom are now starters."

Indiana played without five players who sat out the game with injuries. They are Tamika Catchings, Katie Douglas, Jessica Davenport, Erin Phillips and Jeanette Pohlen. Catchings could be back next week. Davenport is out for the season, and the other three aren't expected to play until next month.

The Fever had only Shavonte Zellous score in double figures. Her 17 points were nearly double that of the team's next highest scorer.

Indiana held the lead through much of the game by playing tough defense and hitting just enough key shots to remain in front.

The Fever scored the first six points of the third quarter to take a 43-35 lead with just under five minutes gone in the second half. Chicago didn't lead until Prince hit a jumper with 5:04 left in the game to put the visitors up 57-56. That gave the Sky the lead for good.
