SAN ANTONIO – Shenise Johnson had 17 points and 10 rebounds and the San Antonio Silver Stars held on for a 70-64 WNBA victory over Seattle on Sunday.

The Silver Stars’ win snapped the Storm’s three-game winning streak.

Danielle Adams and Jia Perkins each had 14 points and Davellyn Whyte added 13 points and seven assists in her second career start for San Antonio (10-17).

Reserve forward Noelle Quinn had 14 points to lead Seattle (13-14). Tina Thompson and Camille Little each had 11 points and Temeka Wright added 10.

The Storm shot 36 percent from the field and were outrebounded by the smaller, but more aggressive Silver Stars.

After struggling to get their shots off in the first half, Seattle rallied in the second half behind a more aggressive approach on offense and defense.

The Storm pulled within 56-50 with 5 minutes left. However, White, Perkins and Johnson eventually closed out the victory, scoring the final six points.
