New York, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Cappie Pondexter scored 23 points and added
eight assists, leading the New York Liberty to an 85-78 victory over the
Atlanta Dream on Sunday to split a home-and-home set.
Los Angeles, Calif. - The San Antonio Stars hung on in the last minute Sunday to edge the Los Angeles Sparks, 72-69.
Stars guard Danielle Robinson made a driving layup with 47 seconds to go to tie the score at 69. Then, with 8.4 seconds remaining she did it again.
