(AP) — Allie Quigley scored 24 points and the Chicago Sky advanced to the WNBA Finals with a 75-62 win over the Indiana Fever on Wednesday night, ending the career of Hall of Fame coach Lin Dunn.

Quigley had 10 of her points in a key second quarter stretch that gave Chicago the lead for good. Sylvia Fowles added 17 points in the decisive Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals.

The Sky will face the Phoenix Mercury in the WNBA Finals which begin Sunday.

Dunn had announced before the season that she would retire when the year was over. She will be succeeded by assistant coach Stephanie White.

Chicago led 61-51 with 3:52 left in the fourth before Quigley hit her fourth 3-pointer to seal the win.

Shavonte Zellous scored 16 points to lead the Fever while All-Star forward Tamika Catchings finished with just nine.
