Shock 77, Mystics 59
Sue Bird had 14 points and seven assists to lead a balanced attack as the Seattle Storm beat the Washington Mystics 64-49 on Sunday night.
Alana Beard scored 22 points, Chasity Melvin had 14, and the Washington Mystics made all 18 free throws Tuesday night in a 93-79 victory over the Houston Comets, who played without reigning MVP Sheryl Swoopes.
Ten years ago, Sheryl Swoopes was ready to walk away from USA Basketball. But here she is, again leading the way for Team USA.
Janeth Arcain scored 23 points, Sheryl Swoopes added 17 and the Houston Comets ended a two-game losing streak with an 83-65 victory over the Washington Mystics on Tuesday.
The Houston Comets are starting to come together without injured star forward Tina Thompson.
