ROSEMONT, Ill. (AP) - Allie Quigley scored 17 points and the Chicago Sky prevented the Atlanta Dream from clinching the top seed in the Eastern Conference with an 80-69 victory on Sunday night.

The Sky are tied for third place in the East. The top four conference teams qualify for the playoffs.

With Washington's loss to Connecticut on Sunday, the Dream could have secured first place in the East with a victory. They were without top scorer Angel McCoughtry, who was averaging 19 points and 5.4 rebounds, because of tendinitis in her feet.

Sancho Lyttle had 16 points and Shoni Schimmel 15 for the Dream, who have clinched a playoff berth despite losing five straight and nine of 11. Atlanta has lost five straight for the first time since a 10-game losing streak in 2008.
