Sky vs San Antonio

Right from tip-off, the Sky and the San Antonio Silver Stars battled for every basket during Tuesday night’s game at Allstate Arena, but San Antonio disappeared with the win in the fourth quarter 84-74.

Epiphanny Prince and Sophia Young of the Silver Stars tied for a game-high 19 points. San Antonio pulled away in the fourth quarter after Young sank a jumper with 4:05 left in the game making it 68-66.

Despite a fourth quarter that sent San Antonio to the line, resulting in their points to tally quickly, the Sky had four of its players score in double figures as well as two of which achieved significant milestones on their WNBA careers.

Along with a stellar offensive performance by Prince who translated 4 steals in the first half into points, Fowles, true to form, helped the team out with a double-double of 16 points and 12 rebounds.

Erin Thorn, the recently silenced three-point specialist, stroked the ball consistently throughout the game ending with a season high 14 points. Cathrine Kraayeveld also secured double-digit points with 10 on the night.

Michelle Snow crashed the boards for an offensive rebound late in the second quarter, which marked the 2000th rebound of her career. Snow became one of twelve players in the WNBA history with 2000+ rebounds.

Kraayeveled also signed her name in the record books after playing in her 193rd consecutive game played. Kraayeveld is now tied with Nikki McCray (1998-2004) for the 15th longest streak in WNBA history.

The Sky, now one game under .500 (4-5), held the league’s and Western Conference leader for the majority of the game, unfortunately not sustaining to the toughness and composure the Sky displayed on the court.
