Preview: Stars face new look Dream at home


The San Antonio Stars return to the court to begin the second half of the season. They are hoping to continue their winning ways at home when they welcome the new-look Atlanta Dream to Freeman Coliseum.

San Antonio (5-12) comes into the game as the fourth seed, leading the Seattle Storm by a 1/2 game. The silver and black are coming off their best performance of the season, a 80-62 win over the Indiana Fever last Tuesday. Danielle Robinson scored 18 points in the win and is averaging 16.2 on 54.8 percent shooting in her last four games.

Atlanta (7-10) spent the All-Star break making deals for the future. The Dream sent Erika de Souza to the Chicago Sky and got Damiris Dantas, Reshanda Gray and a 2016 first-round pick from the Minnesota Lynx in return. The Dream fell 97-91 to the Sky before the break.

The Dream beat the Stars 72-69 on June 11 in Atlanta. Angel McCoughtry had 21 points, while Stars forward Kayla McBride had a season-high 29. Last season the two teams split the season series 1-1.

The Stars and Dream will tip things off tonight at 7 p.m. from Freeman Coliseum and Stephen Anderson will have a recap. Follow @sastarshoops and @andersonstevem on Twitter for live game updates.
