Indianapolis, IN (Sports Network) - The Indiana Fever captured their first WNBA title on Sunday by knocking off the defending champion Minnesota Lynx with a balanced scoring attack.

Four Fever players reached double figures in Game 4's 87-78 victory to complete Indiana's memorable championship run.

Despite losing their second-leading scorer, Katie Douglas, to an ankle injury while upending top-seeded Connecticut in the East Conference finals, the Fever had all the answers in solving the Lynx's deep roster.

Tamika Catchings recorded 25 points and eight assists in the clincher, Erin Phillips netted 18 points and Shavonte Zellous and Briann January each chipped in 15 for Indiana, which forced 12 turnovers and shut down Seimone Augustus.

Augustus, last year's Finals MVP, shot a woeful 3-of-21 from the floor and finished with eight points.
