Game Day Preview: Stars face Shock at home


After their worst loss of the season against the LA Sparks, the San Antonio Stars (2-2) return home to face the Tulsa Shock (0-2). The Shock are the only winless team left in the WNBA and are looking to grab their first win. The Stars and Shock are facing off for the second time this season, with the Stars winning the first game 80-76 on May 17.

The Stars are 1-0 at home, Jia Perkins is currently averaging 16.7 points per game in the last three games with two of three games on the bench with Becky Hammon back in the lineup.

Three quick things to look for from the Stars

1) Danielle Robinson – She has played well throughout the season and has led the team in scoring so far at 15.5 points per game. She struggled last game and how she plays will affect the outcome of the game for the Silver & Black.

2) Sophia Young-Malcolm – She is not herself yet. She has had flashes, but the consistent scoring threat we know her for has not shown up as of yet. If she puts up double digits, the Stars have a good chance to win.

3) Jayne Appel – She was a non-factor last time these two teams played against each other. She will need to rebound and defend Courtney Paris who is having an great season so far.

The Shock and Stars won’t meet again until July. Tip off is at 7 pm local time at the AT&T Center. Remember to check back on Stars Hoops following the game for Stephen Anderson’s post-game report.
