San Antonio was led by Dearica Hamby’s 18 points and seven rebounds. Sydney Colson added 17 points and Jayne Appel-Marinelli chipped in nine for the Stars.

Number two overall pick Moriah Jefferson had six points and dished out six assists in her pro debut.

The Stars were without Kayla McBride and Kayla Alexander, who are both overseas.

Atlanta was led by Elizabeth Williams’ nine points. It was a balanced attack for the Dream, who had no players in double figures.
