Vandersloot, Sky Get Best of January and the Fever
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Epiphanny Prince scored 21 points to lead the Chicago Sky to a 71-61 victory over the injury-plagued Indiana Fever on Saturday night.
Elena Delle Donne had 13 points and Sylvia Fowles added 11 for the Sky (5-3). Vandersloot added 9 points. Prince shot 8 for 14 from the field.
Shavonte Zellous scored 17 points to lead the defending champion Fever (1-6), who were without perennial All-Star Tamika Catchings as they lost their sixth straight. January finished with 8 points.
