SAN ANTONIO – Breanna Stewart had 21 points and seven rebounds, and the Seattle Storm ended a three-game losing streak with a 78-68 win over the San Antonio Stars on Friday night.

Jewell Loyd added 15 points and Crystal Langhorne had 12 points and eight rebounds for Seattle (7-12).

San Antonio (5-14) only led twice, 28-26 on a Sydney Colson basket midway through the second quarter and 38-37 with two minutes left in the first half after a Moriah Jefferson 3-pointer.
