Robinson scores 36 to lead Silver Stars over Shock

Danielle Robinson, who led the Oklahoma Sooners to two Final Four appearances, scored a career-high 36 points to lead the San Antonio Silver Stars to a 102-94 overtime victory over the Tulsa Shock.

Andrea Riley, from Oklahoma State, scored a career-best 20 points for the Shock (3-31), who set the WNBA record for fewest wins in a season. Sheryl Swoopes also had 20 points for Tulsa, followed by Tiffany Jackson with 19, Liz Cambage with 15 and Amber Holt with 11.

Joining Robinson in double figures for the Silver Stars (18-16) was Jia Perkins, who had 22 points, including four 3-pointers and Danielle Adams, who finished with 14 points.

Riley put the Shock ahead 89-85 with 49 seconds left in regulation but San Antonio went on a 5-1 run over the final 33.8 seconds to send the game into overtime. Perkins buried a 3-pointer, and Robinson scored on a driving layup.

Riley could have ended the game in regulation but missed her second free throw with 30.9 seconds remaining.
