Jul 9, 2007 - 12:47 AM INDIANAPOLIS (Ticker) -- Tamika Catchings set a franchise record with 11 assists to go along with a team-high 16 points as the Indiana Fever cruised to an 86-70 victory over the Chicago Sky on Sunday.

Catchings set the pace with nine points and six assists through two quarters as the Fever jumped out to a 50-26 halftime lead. Anna DeForge had nine of her 14 points in the first 20 minutes, eight coming in a 10-0 run to open the game.

Catchings made her presence felt on the defensive end as well, collecting seven steals and moving past Nykesha Sales for third place on the all-time WNBA list.
