GLENVIEW, Ill. — Tamera Young scored 22 points and Allie Quigley added 18 to lead the Chicago Sky to their third straight victory, 92-68 over the New York Liberty on Friday night.
The Sky (18-15) moved a game in front of Atlanta for the fourth-seed in the playoffs and a first-round bye. Atlanta plays at league champion Minnesota on Saturday, and Chicago is at Seattle on Sunday to end the regular season.
Chicago led 25-24 after one quarter but used a 9-0 run, with Quigley scoring five points, to take the lead for good, 34-27. An 8-0 run made it 48-33 and the Sun led by 13 at the half.
New York (21-13) rested several players in its final regular-season game, including Epiphanny Prince, who signed a multi-year contract extension earlier in the day. Tina Charles, who is tied with Chicago's Elena Delle Donne for the league-scoring lead at 21.5 points a game, also sat out. Delle Donne missed her fourth straight game after a thumb injury. She had surgery Tuesday and is questionable for the playoffs.
The Liberty got 15 points from Swin Cash and Carolyn Swords.
