UNCASVILLE, Conn. (AP) – Alex Bentley scored 25 points, Kelsey Bone added 15 points and 10 rebounds, and the Connecticut Sun beat Tulsa 80-74 on Wednesday night to extend the Shock’s losing streak to 10 games.

Camille Little added 11 points to help Connecticut (12-10) run its home winning streak to four games.

The Sun started the second half on a 15-6 spurt, including three consecutive 3-pointers by Little and Bentley, to take a 56-54 lead – their first since 16-15. Connecticut outscored Tulsa 23-12 in the third quarter.

All five starters for Tulsa (10-14) scored in double figures. Odyssey Sims and Karima Christmas scored 15 points apiece, and Riquna Williams added 14.

Sims scored 10 first-quarter points as Tulsa built a 29-23 lead. The Shock’s lead hit double digits on Jordan Hooper’s deep 3-pointer early in the second quarter.
