Mystics take Finals Game 1

Ariel Atkins sparked the Mystics to a 95-86 win over the Sun in Game 1.

Washington shot themselves to the win.

Atkins stepped up and Kristi Toliver got her groove back.

The Mystics executed their game strategy, which was to make life hard on Jonquel Jones.

When Washington goes to work – even in the Finals – it’s business casual.

The Sun’s comeback attempt fell short.



The USA used shutdown defense to run past Canada, 67-46, and claim the gold medal.
