WNBA Preseason: Tulsa (76) – San Antonio (75)

The Tulsa Shock have beaten the San Antonio Silver Stars for the second time in 4 days. However, this time they only won by 1 point, not 23, thanks to 2 free-throws from Skylar Diggins with 2.3 seconds left to the end the game. Overall, Diggins had another tremendos game, scoring 30 points on 11/21 FG. In her rookie season, last year, she averaged 8.5 points per game on 32,8% FG. In the first two preseason games this year, she has scored 27.5 ppg on 54.3% FG, so it looks like this summer the ex-Irish star will get back to her college form and lead the Tulsa Shock as they expected when they selected her 3rd on last years draft.

The other rising star of the Tulsa Shock, Odissey Sims, #2 on this years draft, played her first game with the Shock, and her debut was not bad at all. She scored 13 points and had a +14 for the team, mostly standing out because of her defense. Regarding the rest of the team, Courtney Paris grabbed double-digit rebounds again (12), and Jordan Hooper repeated as the starter small forward, ahead of the veteran Nicole Powell, last years starter (I think this could be a good choice for the season, actually).

With regards to the Silver Stars, the only change on their lineup was that of Kayla McBride, another ex-Irish player, starting as a false small forward. She was her team’s leading scorer with 17 points on a pretty good shooting night, so Dan Hughes will surely give it a thought on the possibility of starting her as a small forward ahead of Shameka Christon or Shenise Johnson.
