    ROSEMONT, Ill. -- Tina Charles had 24 points and 14 rebounds to help the Connecticut Sun open a four-game road trip with an 83-72 win over the Chicago Sky on Tuesday night.

    Charles earned her 13th double-double of the season as the Eastern Conference-leading Sun (18-6) improved to 9-2 on the road. Kara Larson had 18 points and Renee Montgomery added 15.

    Reserve Courtney Vandersloot scored 17 points to lead five Chicago players in double figures. Swin Cash added 15 points, and Carolyn Swords, Epiphanny Prince and Sonja Petrovic each had 10 for the Sky (9-15).

    Chicago, which snapped a nine-game losing streak with Sunday's 82-70 victory at Connecticut, has now lost 10 of its last 11. The Sky were without center Sylvia Fowles, the WNBA's rebounding leader, for the second straight game.
