Ajavon scores 19, Mystics win, 64-61, over Tulsa Shock

On June 3, 2012

Matee Ajavon scored 19 points and Crystal Langhorne added 15 points and 10 rebounds to help Washington fend off Tulsa 64-61 on Saturday night.
Monique Currie had 15 points as the Mystics (1-1) won despite committing 32 turnovers. Dating back to the 2011 season, Washington had lost five straight and 14 of 15 games.
"We didn't particularly play well but we were able to come out with the win,'' Ajavon said. "We have a lot of things to work on and we will practice and come out better.''
The Mystics second-leading scorer last season, Ajavon sat out the season opener with a sore knee. Coming off the bench against the Shock, she sparked the offense in the first half with 15 points, sinking 8-of-10 free throws.
"I got to the free throw line a lot which helped me and I played off of that," Ajavon said.
"It was very nice to have Matee back,'' said Mystics head coach Trudi Lacey after the game. "She is tough and that's what I've asked them to be."
