Shock Lose Opener To Stars

Posted: Updated:

Jia Perkins scored 20 points, including a pair of 3-pointers in the final 45 seconds, and the San Antonio Stars rallied to win their home opener, 80-76 over the Tulsa Shock on Saturday night.

Danielle Robinson had 17 points and five assists, and rookie Kayla McBride had 11 points for San Antonio, which was without Becky Hammon, who missed her second game because of a sprained ankle.

Skyler Diggins had 20 points and nine assists, Glory Johnson added 15 points, and Courtney Paris had 13 points and 13 rebounds for Tulsa.

Following two free throws by Diggins, Perkins' 3-pointer gave San Antonio a 78-76 lead with 15.8 seconds remaining. Tulsa had four attempts to tie the game or regain the lead, but couldn't.

Diggins missed a pair of short-range jumpers, and Williams' 3-point attempt bounded off the glass to Paris, who was fouled. Paris missed both free throws.
