INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Arike Ogunbowale scored 10 consecutive points down the stretch and finished with 28 to help the Dallas Wings beat Indiana 77-76 on Sunday for the Fever's seventh-straight loss.

Indiana had a chance to win after Teaira McCowan missed two free throws with 16 seconds to play but Lexie Hull's 3-pointer from the left corner bounced off the rim as time expired.

Ogunbowale, who had 14 points in the fourth, made a 3-pointer to tie the game at 68 with 4:37 to play and 94 seconds later she made three free throws for a 75-68 advantage. In-between she had a pair of mid-range jumpers.

The Fever scored six straight before Ogunbowale had another jumper for a 77-74 lead but Nalyssa Smith's putback with 35 seconds to go made it a one-point game again.

Natasha Howard had 16 points, eight rebounds, three steals and three blocks for the Wings (10-9).

Aliyah Boston led Indiana (5-14) with 18 points and Smith had 17. The Fever are 1-6 at home.

Dallas dominated the third quarter before the Fever rallied and there were nine ties and 13 lead changes.
