Associated Press The Spokesman-Review

Michelle Snow tied a career high with 24 points and had nine rebounds to lead the Houston Comets to an 87-77 win over Minnesota on Thursday, when the Lynx learned they lost guard Lindsey Harding for the season.

An MRI confirmed that Harding, this year’s No. 1 pick, has a torn anterior cruciate ligament in her left knee. She injured the knee Tuesday in Washington.

Tina Thompson had 22 points and seven rebounds for Houston.

Fever 79, Liberty 63: At Indianapolis, reserve guard Tan White scored 16 points to lead Indiana over New York for its franchise-record fifth straight victory. Tamika Whitmore scored 12 points and Anna DeForge added 11 for the Fever.

Shock 78, Sky 65: At Chicago, Deanna Nolan scored 18 points, reserve Plenette Pierson added 16 and Detroit extended its unbeaten streak over the Sky to six games, dating back to 2005. Guard Katie Smith and forwards Cheryl Ford and Swin Cash added 11 apiece for the Shock, who snapped a two-game road losing streak.

Sun 82, Monarchs 78 (OT): At Sacramento, Calif., Nykesha Sales scored 23 points and Lindsay Whalen added 22 to lead Connecticut to victory over the Monarchs.
