Indiana 80, New York 78
Catchings Leads Fever Past Liberty in Overtime
NEW YORK, June 13 (Ticker) -- Tamika Catchings wanted to show that her selection to the WNBA All-Decade team was no mistake.
Catchings hit a 15-foot jumper in the closing seconds of overtime and finished with a season-high 30 points as the Indiana Fever posted an 80-78 victory over the New York Liberty.
Selected to the league's All-Decade team earlier Tuesday, Catchings made 10-of-19 shots in just over 40 minutes.
The Liberty built a five-point lead in overtime on Shameka Christon's 3-pointer with 1:52 remaining. But the Fever outscored the Liberty, 10-3, over the final 1:32.
Becky Hammon scored 17 points and Kelly Schumacher added a season-high 16 against her former team for New York, which fell to 2-7 on the season.
