WASHINGTON (AP)- Crystal Langhorne scored 12 points and the Washington Mystics beat the Seattle Storm 62-59 on Saturday, giving coach Mike Thibault a WNBA-record 212 career victories.
Thibault coached 10 seasons for the Connecticut Sun before coming to Washington, where he has already guided the Mystics (6-6) to more victories than they had last season. Washington had just 11 wins the past two years combined.
Michelle Snow added eight points and 13 rebounds, and Ivory Latta scored 11 points for the Mystics, who won their second straight game after dropping five in a row.
Thibault owns a career coaching record of 212-140, one more win than Van Chancellor, who won the league's first four championships during 10 seasons leading the Houston Comets.
