WASHINGTON (AP) -- Arike Ogunbowale scored 29 points with nine assists, Isabelle Harrison had 21 points and 10 rebounds, and the Dallas Wings beat the shorthanded Washington Mystics 82-77 on Thursday night.

Ogunbowale converted a three-point play with 1:06 left to give Dallas a 79-77 lead. The Mystics missed a shot, and Ogunbowale was fouled at the other end following Dallas' offensive rebound.

She made 1 of 2 from the line with 9.2 seconds left for a three-point lead. The Mystics were off the mark again on their next possession and Kayla Thornton sealed the game from the foul line.

Moriah Jefferson added 11 points for Dallas (11-14), which outrebounded Washington 35-25. Harrison notched her first double-double since May 22.

Myisha Hines-Allen scored 16 points for Washington (9-15). Theresa Plaisance scored 13 points, and Ariel Atkins added 12. The Mystics turned it over 17 times.

Tina Charles, Washington's leading scorer at 25.4 points per game, will miss the next three to five games because of a strained left gluteal.
