Hartley Provides Spark For Liberty In 85-55 Win Against Mystics

Liberty 85, Mystics 55: After seeing his team struggle to score lately, Liberty coach Bill Laimbeer wanted a more uptempo offense.

Hartley, the former UConn guard, scored 15 points to help New York beat the short-handed Washington Mystics 85-55 in New York on Sunday.
