coy“I am so excited to be rejoining my teammates and coaches in San Antonio,” said Appel. “The fans and support are tremendous and I look forward to continuing our quest for a championship.”

In the 2013 season, the former Stanford Cardinal averaged 5.9 points and 26.5 minutes per game.

“We are excited Jayne will continue to be a key part of the Star’s family into the future,” said Hughes. “Jayne has become one of the premier rebounders and defenders in the WNBA through her consistent improvement. Her leadership within the team and in the community is valuable to us and the fans.”

Appel was selected by the Stars with the fifth pick in the first round of the 2010 WNBA Draft and has appeared in 121 games, averaging 4.0 points 5.7 rebounds, and 1.1 assists in 17.8 minutes.
