Edwards Returns To Spark Rockers To Win Over Sting

By Associated Press

WNBA

Eva Nemcova and Lynette Woodard each scored 14 points as the Cleveland Rockers ended a three-game losing streak with a 65-47 victory over the Charlotte Sting in Thursday night WNBA action at Cleveland.

The Rockers enjoyed their most decisive victory after reactivating point guard Michelle Edwards, who had missed eight games with a sprained left knee. Edwards scored six points in 14 minutes.

The Rockers, who had lost two previous games to the Sting by a combined 52 points, dropped Charlotte to 0-6 on the road.

Vicky Bullett scored a season-high 24 points, hitting 10 of 15 shots, but Sting leading scorer Andrea Stinson was held to seven points, 11 below her average.

The Rockers wiped out a 13-10 deficit with an 11-0 run, capped by Nemcova’s 3-pointer with 7:06 left in the half.
