INDIANAPOLIS, July 7 (Ticker) -- Janeth Arcain didn't make the All-Star team, but she sure played like one against the Indiana Fever.

Arcain hit three go-ahead baskets in the final three minutes, the third coming with 2.9 seconds left, as the Houston Comets withstood a second-half rally and held on for a 65-63 victory over the Fever.

The Comets (10-5) led by as many as 10 points in the first half despite All-Star Sheryl Swoopes going scoreless. They held a seven-point lead at the break and led by as many as nine in the second half.

But Indiana rallied before Arcain, who shot 8-of-11 from the field and finished with 16 points, took over.

Arcain hit a jumper with three minutes left for a 61-59 lead, another jumper with 35 seconds left for a 65-63 edge, then sank her game-winning dagger from 12 feet after Tamika Catchings had tied the game on a runner with 27 seconds to play.

Indiana rallied behind Catchings' 15 second-half points, but her desperation 3-pointer as time expired was no good. Catchings, who entered this one shooting just 30 percent from the floor, including 5-of-26 in her last two games, made of 10-of-17 shots and scored 26 points. Swoopes, who took only two shots in the opening half, finished with 14 points on 5-of-11 shooting and added five assists.
