Sting solid in victory over Fever

May 29, 2004


— Tammy Sutton-Brown had 16 points and seven rebounds Friday night, helping the Charlotte Sting hold the Indiana Fever to a franchise low in a 63-41 win.

Sutton-Brown dominated the inside and made 10 of 11 free throws as the Sting (2-1) won their second straight game.

Tamika Catchings had 15 points and eight rebounds for the Fever (1-2), but was injured with 2:10 left. She was hit in the face by Allison Feasters' forearm in a rebounding scrum and sustained a concussion.

Indiana shot 27 percent, third worst in team history, as it lost its second straight game.

Minneapolis -- Katie Smith scored 28 points, including a key three-pointer late in the game. Minnesota (2-2) was coming off its worst offensive game in franchise history, a 56-44 loss at San Antonio. But a fast start and strong second-half play by their rookies helped avoid a second straight loss.
