Fowles leads Sky past Fever in two overtimes
ROSEMONT, Ill. — Former LSU star Sylvia Fowles scored 27 points and the Chicago Sky beat the Indiana Fever 86-84 in two overtimes to even the best-of-three Eastern Conference finals on Monday.
Courtney Vandersloot had 18 points and Allie Quigley added 16 for the fourth-seeded Sky, who rallied from 14 points down to earned their first home playoff victory. Both of Chicago’s victories in the first round against Atlanta came on the road.
All-Star Elena Delle Donne had just nine points on 4-for-11 shooting but her layup gave the Sky a four-point lead with 1:41 left in the second overtime.
Shavonte Zellous scored 20 points, Tamika Catchings had 16 and Erlana Larkins added 15 for the second-seeded Fever, the 2012 WNBA champions who are trying to reach the WNBA Finals for the third time in six years.
Milan signs Van Ginkel; Biabiany move collapses
MILAN — AC Milan had a busy final day of the transfer window as it completed the signings of Marco van Ginkel and Giacomo Bonaventura but saw the deal for Jonathan Biabiany collapse at the last moment.
The 21-year-old Van Ginkel has been brought in on a one-year loan deal from Chelsea, joining former Stamford Bridge teammate Fernando Torres — who signed a two-year loan deal at the weekend.
“I am very happy, Milan is a great club where many Dutch players have played and some big names,” Van Ginkel said. “I know Nigel De Jong from my experiences with the national team, I spoke to him about Milan and he said excellent things about the club.”
