UNCASVILLE, Conn. (AP) — Courtney Williams scored 15 points to lead a balanced Connecticut offense and the Sun beat the San Antonio Stars 89-75 on Sunday.

Jasmine Thomas, Jonquel Jones and Alyssa Thomas added 13 points apiece, Alyssa Thomas had nine rebounds for the Sun (12-8). They have won 11 of their last 14 after losing five of six to open the season.

Kayla McBride's layup gave San Antonio (2-17) a seven-point lead 30 seconds into the second half, but Connecticut used a 26-4 run — during which the Stars went scoreless for nearly 3 1/2 minutes — to take a 61-46 lead seven minutes later. Williams scored 10 points during that stretch and the Sun led by double figures the rest of the way.

Isabelle Harrison led San Antonio with 17 points, McBride had 14, and Kelsey Plum added 11. Plum, the first pick in the draft and the NCAA career scoring leader, has scored in double figures in three of the last four games after failing to do so in the first 12 games of her career.
