Indianapolis, IN (Sports Network) - The Indiana Fever captured their first
WNBA title on Sunday by knocking off the defending champion Minnesota Lynx
with a balanced scoring attack.
Four Fever players reached double figures in Game 4's 87-78 victory to
complete Indiana's memorable championship run.
Despite losing their second-leading scorer, Katie Douglas, to an ankle injury
while upending top-seeded Connecticut in the East Conference finals, the Fever
had all the answers in solving the Lynx's deep roster.
Tamika Catchings recorded 25 points and eight assists in the clincher, Erin
Phillips netted 18 points and Shavonte Zellous and Briann January each chipped
in 15 for Indiana, which forced 12 turnovers and shut down Seimone Augustus.
Augustus, last year's Finals MVP, shot a woeful 3-of-21 from the floor and
finished with eight points.
