Mapp Leads Way On Road For Charlotte

By Associated Press

WNBA

Rhonda Mapp had 15 points and Andrea Stinson 11 for the Charlotte Sting, who blew most of an 11-point lead in the final 2-1/2 minutes before defeating New York 64-61 Saturday at New York.

It was the Liberty’s second consecutive home loss and Charlotte’s first road victory.

The Sting (7-7) salvaged a split of the four-game season series despite committing 28 turnovers in a sloppy game against the league-leading Liberty (13-4).

Sophia Witherspoon led New York with 21 points.

Charlotte took control of the game early as New York missed 14 of its first 15 shots and committed seven turnovers in the first 8 minutes. The Sting led by as many as 18 before New York started to pull back into the game early in the second half.
