By the Numbers - 2014 Stars Season Wrap Up

1  The Stars finished first in the WNBA in both free-throw and three-point field goal percentage. San Antonio shot 82.2 percent from the charity stripe over the course of the season, while making 35.9 percent of their attempts from beyond the arc. Guard Danielle Robinson led the WNBA in free-throw percentage, shooting 94.1 percent from the line. Jia Perkins led the way from the three-point line for the Stars, shooting 41.1 percent and ranking third in the WNBA. Becky Hammon (39.8 percent) and Kayla McBride (39.6 percent) also ranked in the top six in the league in three-point percentage.

101  On June 14, the Stars beat the Los Angeles Sparks, 101-74, marking the first time in almost three years that San Antonio reached the triple-digit scoring plateau. The last time the Stars achieved this difficult feat was on Sept. 11, 2011 when they defeated the Tulsa Shock on the road, 102-94. The team record for points scored in a single game remains 108 set in June of 2010.

2  Stars guard Danielle Robinson was named to her second consecutive All-Star team in July. The Oklahoma alum finished the season averaging, 12.9 points, 5.3 assists and 1.7 steals in 33.0 minutes. Robinson played 14 minutes in this years All-Star contest, which was set in Phoenix, scoring six points and recording two steals overall.

14- On May 30 in Minnesota, the Stars made 14 three-point field goals to set a new franchise single-game record. The previous record of 13 had been done seven times before, but the new record was set on the back of four three-pointers made by Jia Perkins and three by Becky Hammon and Kayla McBride.

24  On June 14 against the Sparks, the Stars were perfect from the line, making all 24 of their free throw attempts. The impressive tally is tied for the third most free throw makes without a miss in a single game in WNBA history. The current record for most made free throws without a miss is 27, which has been done twice.

6  Stars guard Jia Perkins finished the 2014 season as a major candidate for the Sixth Woman of the Year award. The Texas Tech alum averaged 12.5 points, 2.3 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 1.5 steals in 23 minutes this season. Among WNBA players who predominately came off the bench in 2014, Perkins led the way in scoring average. She ranked third in the league in three-point percentage and ninth in steals per game. Allie Quigley of the Chicago Sky ended up taking home the Sixth Woman of the Year Award after an impressive season, and Perkins may have been hampered by missing 11 games during the regular season due to injury.

442  Stars rookie Kayla McBride led the team in points scored and scoring average during the 2014 season, while also leading the squad in scoring during the 2014 playoffs. McBrides 442 points are the most by a Stars rookie in a single season since the franchise relocated to San Antonio in 2003. Her total surpassed Sophia Young-Malcolms 408 total points during her rookie season in 2006. Her 13.0 points per game by a rookie ranks fourth in Stars franchise history.

1.000  Becky Hammon became the first player in franchise history to make every single one of her free-throws during the season. She sunk all 35 attempts she took from the line, and even made all six of her free-throws during the playoffs. Her 35 attempts were not enough to qualify her for the league rankings, but her record still stands at the top of the Stars history books.

20  On Aug. 10 against the Sparks, Stars center Jayne Appel tied a franchise record by grabbing 20 total rebounds in the game. Her mark ties Natalie Williams who also grabbed 20 boards in 2002 when the franchise was still located in Utah. Appels 7.9 rebounds per game ranked 10th in the WNBA in 2014.

3,000  Stars veteran Shameka Christon reached a historical milestone in the 2014 season on Aug. 7 when she scored the 3,000th point of her career. Christon has averaged nearly 10.0 points per game over the course of her career and became only the third Stars player to reach the 3,000 point plateau.

25  Stars legend, Becky Hammon, announced in July of this year that she would retire at the end of the 2014 WNBA season. Hammons number 25 will forever be associated with greatness in San Antonio as she begins her next career venture as an assistant coach with the San Antonio Spurs. Hammon retires as the Stars all-time leader in three-point field goals made, assists and points per game. She was named a WNBA Top 15 Player of All-Time in 2011 and is a two-time All-WNBA First Team selection. Hammon was awarded the Kim Perrot Sportsmanship Award following the conclusion of the regular season this year.
