Balanced scoring was key, as Parker and Gabby Williams each scored 16 points to lead the Sky, while Quigley had 15 and Copper added 14.
As for what this win means, Sky General Manager and Head Coach James Wade said in a statement that Washington is a "championship teammo matter who they put on the floor, in part because they have a championship coaching staff and they have a championship culture. So you just have to be ready to play. ... We didn't expect it to be easy so it came down to the final seconds and we were able to execute one more play more than them."
