Preview: Stars look to end road woes in Chicago


The San Antonio Stars have not hit the panic button despite their slow start. The silver and black will look to end their losing ways on the road when they face the Chicago Sky today at 5 p.m.

San Antonio (4-11) are coming off a 65-58 win over the Tulsa Shock on Friday. Sophia Young-Malcolm had 18 points and Danielle Robinson added 16 points to help the Stars win their fourth straight at home. The silver and black were without Kayla McBride (foot), Jia Perkins (calf) and Alex Montgomery (knee) for the fifth straight game.

The Stars are 2-3 in that stretch. Young-Malcolm has averaged 14.2 points to help San Antonio stay competitive without their two top stars. San Antonio will look to snap their road losing streak and come in 0-8 away from the Lone Star State.

Chicago (9-6) fell 84-66 to the Minnesota Lynx on Friday. Elena Delle Donne led the Sky with 15 points on 5 of 15 shooting.

Last season, San Antonio went 2-0 against Chicago, but this season they lost their lone meeting against the Sky. The Stars fell on June 20 95-87 in overtime at the Freeman Coliseum. Kayla McBride and Sophia Young-Malcolm each had 16 points in the loss.

The Stars and Sky will tip things off at 5 p.m. from Allstate Arena and Stephen Anderson will have a recap. Follow @andersonstevem and @sastarshoops for live updates.
