NEW YORK (AP) — The WNBA says the foul that led to the winning free throw in the Western Conference finals should not have been called.

With the score tied in the final seconds of Sunday's game between Minnesota and Phoenix, Lynx star Maya Moore stole Noelle Quinn's pass. Quinn was whistled for a reach-in foul, and Moore made a free throw with 1.5 seconds left for a 72-71 victory that gave Minnesota a two-game sweep and a spot in the WNBA Finals.

WNBA chief of basketball operations and player relations Renee Brown said in a statement Monday that "after reviewing postgame video and interviewing last night's game officials, we have determined a foul should not have been called."
