WOMEN'S BASKETBALL: Indiana Holds Off Chicago
ROSEMONT, Ill. (AP) -- Ebony Hoffman scored 13 points and Katie Douglas and Jessica Moore added 10 apiece and the Indiana Fever held off a late Chicago Sky rally for a 70-64 victory on Sunday.

The Fever, who never trailed in the second half, hit 5 of 6 free throws in the final 18.5 seconds to pull away after Chicago trimmed the margin to 65-64.

The victory was the fourth straight for Indiana (9-5) and the third this season over Chicago (6-9).

Indiana shot 10 of 17 from 3-point range, including 3 of 4 from Hoffman.

Erin Thorn scored 15 points off the bench for the Sky while Sylvia Fowles added 11 points and a game-high 17 rebounds.
