Buescher shines for Silver Stars

NEW YORK (WNBA) - Erin Buescher had season highs of 23 points and 16 rebounds to lift the San Antonio Silver Stars to a 71-68 victory over the Detroit Shock.

Vickie Johnson broke a 66-66 tie with a three-pointer to give the Silver Stars the lead with 1:15 remaining.

The Shock then had a chance to pull level but the Silver Stars retained their 69-68 advantage when Katie Smith missed the second free throw attempt with five ticks left.

Deanna Nolan had 24 points for Detroit, who have lost three of their last four contests.

Rebekkah Brunson scored 17 points and grabbed 12 rebounds to lead the Sacramento Monarchs to a 76-68 victory over the Minnesota Lynx.

Brunson shot 5-of-10 from the floor to help the Monarchs remain at the top of the Western Conference standings by snapping a two-game losing skid.

Nicole Powell had 16 points and four steals and Scholanda Robinson added 11 points for Sacramento, who shot 42 percent (27-of-64) and forced 21 turnovers.

Tamika Catchings and Tan White finished with 14 points apiece to lead the Indiana Fever to a 69-92 win over the Washington Mystics.

Alana Beard's consecutive three-pointers and a layup had got Washington within 63-58 with 1:30 remaining.

After Catchings made two free throws at the other end, Washington guard Nikki Blue was fouled while making a layup.

DeLisha Milton-Jones rebounded Blue's missed free throw and was immediately fouled. Milton-Jones made both free throws which brought the Mystics within 65-62 with 38.7 seconds left.

But after Tamika Whitmore's lay-up made it 67-62, White made two free throws with 13.1 seconds left to seal the victory.

Also on Sunday, Iziane Castro Marques scored 24 points to lead the Seattle Storm to an 84-53 romp over the New York Liberty.

And Candice Dupree scored 24 points as the Chicago Sky posted a 74-71 overtime victory over the Los Angeles Sparks.

Dupree nailed a jumper with nine seconds remaining in regulation to tie the game at 55-55 for the Sky, who have won two straight following three consecutive losses.

With Chicago clinging to 71-69 lead in the extra period, the 6ft 2in forward hit a runner with 1:28 remaining to give the Sky all the working margin they would
need.
