Washington Mystics make history with 23rd victory of the season, defeat Dallas Wings

Elena Delle Donne scored 29 points, Emma Meesseman added 19 points, seven rebounds, seven assists and four blocks, and the Washington Mystics beat the Dallas Wings 91-85 on Saturday night.

Washington set a franchise record winning its 23rd game of the season and remained in first place in the standings. 

Natasha Cloud and Shatori Walker-Kimbrough scored 13 points apiece and LaToya Sanders added 12 points and a season-high 11 rebounds for the Mystics (23-8). Washington has won three games in a row and 14 of its last 16.

Delle Donne and Meesseman hit back-to-back 3-pointers to spark an 11-0 run that gave Washington nine-point lead when Meesseman's three-point play capped the spurt with 5:39 left in the first quarter. The Wings scored 13 of the next 18 points to cut their deficit to 23-21 about 2 minutes later but Delle Donne answered with a 3-point play and Dallas got no closer. 

Arike Ogunbowale scored 30 points, Glory Johnson tied her season-high with 20 points and Allisha Gray added 14 for Dallas (10-21). Ogunbowale, who scored 35 in a win over Chicago on Thursday, extended her WNBA rookie record to eight consecutive games with at least 20 points. 

The Mystics used a 9-0 run to make it 80-57 -- their biggest lead of the game -- late in the third quarter. Dallas scored 24 of the next 30 points to pull within six with 90 seconds left.

Troubling video of ex-NBA star Delonte West leads to suspension of Prince George's police officer

A Prince George's police officer was suspended after a troubling video emerged of his interaction with former NBA player and Eleanor Roosevelt alum Delonte West handcuffed after an alleged altercation.

The disturbing video showed West handcuffed on a sidewalk after getting involved in a physical conflict with a civilian. The off-screen officer was asking West questions on what happened to the events leading to him roughed up on the side of the road. West alleges that he was approached by a man with a gun. 

Prince George's police department announced that the video was filmed by a member of their department, leading to the officer's suspension. 

"Today at 12:15 pm, we learned the video that is currently on social media depicting the male in handcuffs was recorded by a Prince George’s County Police officer. The circumstances surrounding the recording and release of that video are now the subject of an internal investigation. That officer is now suspended pending the outcome of this investigation," the department said in a release.

Another disturbing video from a bystander shows the fight between the presumed West and another unidentified man. One man was standing over the other and continuously stomping on what appears to be West.

Meanwhile, West's former teammates and coaches took to social media to express their concerns.

West played eight years in the NBA across four franchises. He played his college ball at Saint Joseph's where he was teammates with Jameer Nelson and was coached by Phil Martelli.
