ARLINGTON, Texas -- Arike Ogunbowale made a late go-ahead 3-pointer and finished with 23 points to help the Dallas Wings beat the Connecticut Sun 74-73 on Wednesday night.
Down 13 late in the third quarter, Connecticut opened the fourth on a 15-2 run to take a 66-63 lead.
Ogunbowale, a rookie who had 25 points on Saturday night in a loss in Las Vegas, banked in a long 3-pointer with 1:23 remaining for a 72-70 lead. Neither team scored again until Allisha Gray made two free throws with 5.1 seconds left to give Dallas a four-point lead. Jasmine Thomas answered with a corner 3, but Gray ran out the clock at the other end.

Alyssa Thomas scored a career-high 28 points for Connecticut (9-3). Jasmine Thomas added 19 points and 11 assists.
Sacramento Kings guard Buddy Hield sat courtside wearing an orange Jonquel Jones jersey -- his childhood friend from the Bahamas. Former NBA guard Jason Terry also was in attendance.
Taurasi medically cleared, must serve suspension
Phoenix Mercury star Diana Taurasi has been medically cleared to return from a lingering back issue, but she must serve a one-game suspension before playing.
Perhaps returning home to Staples Center will be what the Los Angeles Sparks need to halt their current rough patch.
Both the Las Vegas Aces and Phoenix Mercury will be at full strength Tuesday night in a game critical to their specific playoff ambitions as All-Stars A'ja Wilson and Brittney Griner are back in the fold for their respective teams.
