    ROSEMONT, Ill. -- Epiphanny Prince hit a 3-pointer to force overtime and added eight points in the extra session in the Chicago Sky's 98-91 victory over the winless Tulsa Shock on Friday night.

    Prince, the WNBA scoring leader, finished with 32 points. She scored eight points in the final 29 seconds of regulation, including a buzzer-beating 3-pointer for a 77-77 tie.

    Tamera Young added 16 points, and Sylvia Fowles, Swin Cash and Courtney Vandersloot each had 14. Fowles also tied a career high with 21 rebounds for Chicago (5-1), off to its best start in franchise history.

    Scholanda Dorrell scored 25 points for the Shock (0-7), who have dropped five straight on the road. Glory Johnson and Lynetta Kizer each had 17 points, and Jennifer Lacy added 13.

    Prince scored 31 and 33 points in two games last week, leading Chicago to a pair of comeback wins.

    Tulsa rallied from a 33-27 deficit late in the second quarter and trimmed Chicago's halftime lead to 35-34 on Latta's driving layup in the final seconds.

    The Sky threatened to pull away early in the third, opening a game-high 13-point lead after a Fowles fast-break layup with 5:50 left. But the Shock cut it to three at 50-47 with eight straight points by Johnson.

    Young hit back-to-back baskets in the final 2:40 to help Chicago to a 54-49 lead entering the final 10 minutes.

    The Shock opened the fourth quarter with an 11-1 run to take a lead it maintained until Prince's final shot in regulation.

    The Sky were without reserve guard Shay Murphy, who left the team this week to fulfill obligations with the Montenegro national team. Murphy, who was averaging 2.6 points, will miss five contests.
