SEATTLE (AP) — Alex Bentley scored 22 points and rookie Chiney Ogwumike had 14 points and 10 rebounds Tuesday, helping the Connecticut Sun beat the Seattle Storm 86-63 to snap a three-game skid.

Connecticut (10-13) had lost seven of eight.

Bentley scored 16 points during the first half. Ogwumike got into double figures for the 20th time in her first 21 games. The double-double was her eighth. Kelsey Bone added 16 points off the bench.

Camille Little had 14 points for the Storm (9-15), who have lost two in a row and three of four. Crystal Langhorne had 11 points and Sue Bird 10 for Seattle.

The Storm, down 39-30 at halftime, got as close as seven midway through the third quarter at 44-37. But Connecticut ran off the next six points to make it 50-37 and kept the margin in double digits the rest of the afternoon.
