WASHINGTON (AP) - Ivory Latta scored 15 points and the Washington Mystics posted their largest margin of victory in nearly three years in an 84-61 win over the Tulsa Shock on Sunday.

Monique Currie scored 13 points, Crystal Langhorne added 11, and Matee Ajavon had 10 for Washington (5-6), which snapped a five-game losing streak with its second win over Tulsa this year.

``This was a must-win game for us,'' Currie said. ``We had lost five games in a row, and it was important for us to come out here and not only protect our home court but show we're capable of coming out here and winning games.''

The game marked Washington's fewest points allowed and Tulsa's fewest points scored this season.
