Hammon scores 26 to lead Silver Stars

May 30, 2007 - 3:45 AM HOUSTON (Ticker) -- Houston, we have a problem ... and apparently, it was the second quarter.

After enjoying a 10-point first-quarter lead, the winless Houston Comets were nearly run off the court in the second quarter as the San Antonio Silver Stars raced to an 82-71 victory Tuesday.

Guard Becky Hammon scored 10 of her game-high 26 points in the decisive quarter for San Antonio, which outscored Houston, 24-7, in the frame. Hammon was 6-for-9 from 3-point range and helped the Silver Stars convert a team-high 13 of their 24 3-point attempts. By comparison, Houston was 2-for-19 from 3-point range.

Forward Sophia Young added 16 points for San Antonio (3-1).

Three-time WNBA MVP Sheryl Swoopes, who also has won three Olympic gold medals to her credit, was held to six points on 1-for-5 shooting from the field for the Comets.

Michelle Snow had 20 points and 12 rebounds while Tina Thompson added 18 points for Houston, which fell to 0-3 for the first time in franchise history. The Comets are one of three winless teams in the league, joining the 0-5 Minnesota Lynx and the Washington Mystics.
