Stanford grad Appel helps Stars down visiting Liberty

 

Stanford grad Jayne Appel grabbed a team-high nine rebounds, recorded three assists and blocked a shot to help the San Antonio Stars beat the visiting New York Liberty, 80-66, in a WNBA game on Wednesday night.

Kayla McBride matched her career-high with 30 points to lead the Stars (11-9) on 12 of 20 shooting.

Danielle Adams added 16 points as the Stars won their fourth in five games. Danielle Robinson chipped in with 13 points.

San Antonio, third in the West Conference, remains at home, hosting the Seattle Storm on Friday night. The teams have split their first two games, with each winning at home.

The Indiana Fever, second to the Atlanta Dream in the East Conference, hopes to continue its hot streak on Thursday when they host the Connecticut Sun, who has lost five of their last six.

Stanford grad Chiney Ogwumike scored 19 points in Connecticut's last game, an 83-71 loss to Atlanta.

"I made a personal goal to play harder in the second half and had the support of my teammates," Ogwumike told the WNBA website. "But I think they controlled the tempo because they played like a team, they celebrated together, and that's one thing that we're trying to do consistently. They did it for 40 minutes. We did it for about 25 minutes."
