SEATTLE (AP) - Camille Little scored nine of her 22 points in overtime to lead the Seattle Storm in an 89-86 victory over the Washington Mystics on Sunday night.

Sue Bird added 21 points as the Storm (6-9) snapped a two-game losing streak. Bird hit a tying 3-pointer with 1:18 left in regulation.

Rookie guard Bria Hartley scored a season-high 26 points for Washington (5-9), which lost for the fourth straight time. Hartley's previous high was 20 on June 1 against Los Angeles.

The teams traded the first two baskets of overtime before Little scooped one in while falling to the floor. That put the Storm on top 79-77 with 3:37 left, and they stayed ahead the rest of the way.

It was Seattle's second straight overtime game, following an 87-82 loss to San Antonio on Thursday.
