Playing at home didn't quite give the Shock the advantage they were looking for.

In a rematch of this season's opener, Tulsa hosted San Antonio on Friday but fell 93-62 to start the season 0-3.

The Shock got outplayed in nearly every aspect, but nowhere was it more apparent on the stat sheet than field goal percentage.

San Antonio nearly doubled Tulsa's field goal percentage, shooting 60 percent to the Shock's 34 percent.

The Silver Stars also shot 62 percent from 3-point range.

Only one Tulsa player made it to double digits – Elizabeth Cambage, who had 10 points and three rebounds after posting double-doubles in her first two games.

San Antonio had five players in double digits.

One of the main attractions for fans was a revisit of an in-state rivalry over the past few years.

Former Oklahoma State guard Andrea Riley and former OU guard Danielle Robinson faced off. Robinson is a rookie for San Antonio, while Riley is starting her sophomore campaign after originally playing for Los Angeles.

Both guards fared well in the game, with Robinson putting up six points and two assists while Riley had eight points.

Tulsa will hit the road to face Connecticut on Sunday at 2 p.m.
