Silver Stars Hold Off Shock

Posted: Updated:

Danielle Robinson scored 19 points, Jia Perkins had 18 and the San Antonio Silver Stars beat the Tulsa Shock 69-65 on Sunday for their third straight home victory.

Danielle Adams added 14 points and Jayne Appel had nine points and 13 rebounds for San Antonio (7-13).

Glory Johnson scored 19 points and Liz Cambage added 16 for Tulsa (7-15), which has lost two of three.

With the Silver Stars leading by four in the final minute, Robinson was fouled twice and made all four free throws to help secure the win. Tulsa followed each pair with a 3-pointer - the latter by Jennifer Lacy that pulled the Shock to 67-65 with 19 seconds remaining.

Perkins and Robinson each made a free throw in the final 17 seconds to close out the victory.

After failing to score in the first 2 1/2 minutes of the second half, the Silver Stars went on a 19-9 run to tie it at 52-all entering the final quarter.

Adams scored San Antonio's first five points in the third, dropping in a two-foot jumper, a free throw and finishing off with a fade-away runner with 6:07 left in the quarter. Shameka Christon's 3-pointer with 2.6 seconds left in the period tied the score.

Appel shook her head after banking in a 27-foot 3-pointer with two seconds left on the shot clock, turning and throwing up a shot off a loose ball to give San Antonio a 58-55 lead with 3:47 remaining. She missed an open layup in the final minute which would have given her a double-double.

Adams followed Appel's 3 with her own and Robinson drove past Goodrich for a layup to extend the Silver Stars' lead to 63-57 with 2:07 to go.

Tulsa opened the game by scoring the first five points only to be outscored 12-2 to fall behind by five with 4 minutes left in the opening quarter.
