Preview: Stars look to break out of winless funk
The San Antonio Stars will look to grab their first win of the 2015 season when they face the defending champion Phoenix Mercury tonight at the Freeman Coliseum.
Phoenix (3-3) defeated San Antonio 76-71 on opening night. However, the Mercury were without Diana Taurasi (rest) and Brittney Griner (suspension). Without the 2014 Defensive Player of the Year, the defending champions are just 3-3 as she serves the final game of her seven game suspension.
San Antonio (0-6) is off to their worst start in franchise history, remaining winless after six games. The Stars fell 95-87 in overtime against the Chicago Sky on Saturday night. The silver and black had six players in double figures, led by Sophia Young-Malcolm’s 16 points and season-best 11 rebounds.
The Stars went 1-3 against Phoenix last season.
The Stars and Mercury will hit the court tonight at 7 p.m. at Freeman Coliseum and Stephen Anderson will have a recap. Follow @andersonstevem and @sastarshoops for live updates from the arena.
