The Washington Mystics achieved a much needed 75-71 win over the Chicago Sky in an overtime thriller at the Verizon Center on Aug. 19. Matee Ajavon scored 22 points for the Mystics including a tying 3-point basket with less than 2 seconds left in regulation time, and Jasmine Thomas made the go-ahead 3-pointer with 16 seconds left in overtime. The WNBA has recently restarted its schedule after a month-long hiatus due to the Summer Olympics. Crystal Langhorne had 18 points for the Mystics. Washington celebrated its 15th year in the league by honoring its All-Time team, including Langhorne and Chamique Holdsclaw, Nikki McCray, Vicki Bullett and Murriel Page as selected by a fan vote.
