    UNCASVILLE, Conn. -- Renee Montgomery scored 22 points and Asjha Jones added 18 to help the Connecticut Sun rout the Tulsa Shock 90-62 on Tuesday night.

    Tan White and Sandrine Gruda scored 13 points apiece for the Sun (16-16) and Tina Charles earned her league-record 21st double-double of the season with 10 points and 10 rebounds.

    "I'm very happy," Connecticut coach Mike Thibault said. "We competed really hard against a team that's difficult to play against because of their style."

    Connecticut was eliminated from playoff contention last Sunday, but can still finish with a winning record.

    "These games shouldn't be throw-aways," Thibault said. "There's still time to build some chemistry for next season."

    Scholanda Robinson led Tulsa (5-27) with 18 points.

    The Shock lost their fifth straight and for the 10th time in the last 11 games.

    Shanna Crossley and Marion Jones scored 10 points apiece for Tulsa.

    Connecticut led by as many as 16 in the first half before the Shock cut the lead to 38-32 late in the second period.

    Tulsa trailed by seven at halftime and got no closer.

    "I thought we played well in the first half to stay within striking distance," Tulsa coach Nolan Richardson said. "Our pressure defense seemed to bother them. But they're a good team and they shoot the ball well."
