Mercury's Sancho Lyttle has torn ACL, will miss rest of season

Phoenix starting power forward Sancho Lyttle tore her ACL on Saturday night and will miss the remainder of the season, the Mercury announced Monday.

Lyttle, 34, signed as a free agent in the offseason and has averaged 7.9 points and 5.3 rebounds in 18 games for the Mercury this season.

She had also been a significant force, with center Brittney Griner, in strengthening the interior defense for the league-leading Mercury.
