ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Shekinna Stricklen scored a season-high 24 points and tied a WNBA record with eight 3-pointers to help the Connecticut Sun beat the Dallas Wings 92-75 on Sunday.

Stricklen finished 8 of 11 from 3-point range and matched the mark set by Diana Taurasi, who has made eight 3-pointers three times, and Riquna Williams, who has done it once.

Courtney Williams and Jonquel Jones added 15 points each for the Sun (13-12).

The Wings (14-11) closed a 16-point deficit to 78-71, but Jasmine Thomas’ pull up jumper with 3:19 left in the game stopped the Dallas rally and sparked a 14-2 run in which Connecticut pulled away for good.
