Stars vs. Storm final score: Stricklen leads Seattle to 88-67 blow out win over S.A.

Marilyn Indahl-USA TODAY Sports

The Seattle Storm (9-13) had an efficient night shooting and rebounding the basketball, which helped them get a big 88-67 win over the San Antonio Stars (11-10).

The Seattle Storm got a critical win on the road by blowing out the San Antonio Stars 88-67. Shekinna Stricklen was the x-factor for this contest, where she scored a season-high 19 points off the bench.

Though the Stars ran out to a quick 15-7 lead early in the first quarter, Crystal Langhorne and Shekinna Stricklen were big keys for a 13-4 run to finish the quarter, which included Stricklen making a buzzer beating layup, and five points overall in the period.

In the second quarter, Stricklen got into a zone, scoring 12 more points, including two of her three point shots. In addition, the Stars committed four turnovers, which turned into 10 Seattle points. Once Sue Bird made a three with two seconds left before the end of the first half, the score was 47-35 Seattle.

From there, the Storm led by double digits the rest of the way, and led by as many as 21 points. In fact, that's exactly how many points they won by in the game. Give kudos to the Green and Gold for not letting go of the gas once they knew this game was theirs. Besides a strong scoring night, a big key to the Storm's victory was rebounds, where they outrebounded the Stars, 32-22 for the night.

In addition to Stricklen's 19, Langhorne, Bird, and Camille Little also scored in double digits for Seattle with 16, 14, and 10 points respectively.

For San Antonio, Kayla McBride led the Stars' scorers with 13 point, 10 of them coming from the free throw line. Danielle Robinson and Shenise Johnson both scored 10 points each.
