Arike Ogunbowale scored eight of her 35 points in the fourth quarter and the Dallas Wings snapped a four-game losing skid with an 88-83 victory over the Chicago Sky on Thursday night.

The Sky (18-13), who are playoff bound for the first time in two seasons, have lost consecutive games after winning three in a row.

Ogunbowale matched her career-high in scoring and added six assists. She also surpassed 500 career points and is the first rookie in league history to have seven consecutive 20-point games. Isabelle Harrison had 18 points and 12 rebounds for the Wings (10-20). Allisha Gray added 16 points and Glory Johnson had 10.

Courtney Vandersloot had 19 points and seven assists to lead the Sky. Diamond DeShields had 17 points, Allie Quigley 16 and Stefanie Dolson finished with 15 points and 11 rebounds.

The game was tied 75-all when Ogunbowale scored four of the Wings' next nine points and Dallas moved out to an 84-79 lead with 52.2 seconds left. Quigley hit a jumper that pulled the Sky within three points before Ogunbowale and Gray sealed the victory at the free-throw line.
